After 3 years construction, the HeFei No.10 Secondary School has finally welcomed in its’ first grade students tostart their 3 years study in this bran-new campus.
 
During the process of the campus design work, we try to connect thevarious functional areas followed by its own narration; but also asymmetricallyon the spatial relationship. Specifically, the functional areas are students’teaching area, library and art buildings, laboratory and dormitory. These areasconnect to each other by its own functional characteristics. This ideologycomes from the traditional Chinese academic institutions; it also implied ourunderstanding of the traditional Chinese culture about “school”.
 
For the architectural design itself, we want to use succinct lines toexpress the complex space relations. It finally comes to various smallcombinations of inner courtyard, superterranean spaces, corridors andfootsteps.
 
The boundary of each areas are defined or half-defined which createdrelatively isolated, peaceful but also echoed lots.
 
Traditionally, as the famous YueLu academic institution, the overalllayout is symmetrical; but this campus limited by the outline of the land, sowe decided to use relatively unconstrained layout scheme followed by logicallyarrangement.
 
In September 2015, HeFei No.10 Secondary School opened for the new students, thefunctional areas and buildings that we designed has been used; although therewas several unsatisfaction during the construction process, but the finalresult is overall approving. As the designer, I believe that is an outcome thatcontributed by the entire team’s hard work.
