Hi-Tech Zone Shiyang Elementary School
Cheng Du, Sichuan

Shiyang Elementary School, is a public elementary school located in Chengdu’s “Hi-Tech Zone” and houses a student body of 1,174. State of the art classrooms provide students with the latest in learning technology.

The basic campus planning of the school is divided into a northern teaching block and a southern sports gymnasium and activity block. A central plaza is located at the main entrance connects the two and provides a space for students to socialize and interact between classes.

To minimize maintenance, the facade of the building was simplified into to a series of elemental blocks which express the various functions of the building in a particularly “modernist” approach. Glass-enclosed vertical cores encourage use of the staircases and make them more welcoming for students moving between classes, while voids are carved out of the basic blocks to provide outdoor spaces throughout the building and encourage natural light to infiltrate further into the floorplates.

Some of the provided amenity spaces include clean-room-standard science labs, a robotics workshop, and 30-metre climbing wall.
