The project is located in the core area of the Bohai Science and Technology Innovation City within the Binzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone. It is a 12-year consistent education institution comprising 60 classes for elementary school and 24 classes for middle school, utilizing a small-class teaching approach. The Department of Basic Education caters to a total of 1,800 students, with 1,200 in elementary school and 600 in middle school. This project serves as a vital educational support initiative for the Science and Technology Innovation City.
The envisioned future education landscape should be a community where knowledge, information, and vitality intertwine, embracing a sense of sharing, diversity, and complexity. By reimagining the meaning of education and with an open, international perspective, enriched dynamic spatial experiences, and a culture of shared communication, we aim to create a teaching environment model centered around liberal arts, ecological integration, and multidimensional sharing. This model seeks to establish a high-quality, exemplary campus for the future.
The overall layout of the Bohai Experimental School harmoniously reflects the character "儒" （Ru） both in form and essence. The planned layout extends outward from the central cross-axis, creating an organically growing campus environment that corresponds with urban development axes. Campus open spaces, including arts and sports facilities, face the main city road, with distinctive art centers and sports arenas positioned at road intersections. This design fosters a campus atmosphere at the city interface and provides the city with shared facility resources for the surrounding area.
The campus centers around the rooftop research and study platform in the professional teaching area, extending courtyard-style teaching spaces. This design incorporates elevated walkways, study corridors, an eastern-side viewing platform, a clock tower, and an academy to create a pervasive research and study environment. Indoor and outdoor teaching spaces intermingle, and the campus fosters organic flow within a system of shared communication, fully igniting students' innovative drive. This framework constructs a free, open campus culture.
On the east side of the teaching building, a semi-enclosed student activity and teaching seminar space is embedded as an innovation workshop, breaking away from conventional teaching environments. The workshop hovers above the platform, overlapping with the research and study platform to create a non-traditional teaching space. Simultaneously, it becomes a unique urban landmark. The rich campus views and spatial dimensions, along with vibrant campus scenes, accompany children as they grow happily and explore the future.
The entire teaching area is characterized by freedom, integration, and fluidity. The interweaving of courtyard spaces, platform spaces, and various levels of open spaces blurs the boundaries of teaching, creating a borderless research and study environment.
多元聚合 · 探索教学
The teaching area adopts a layout based on unit modules, with functional stacking in the vertical direction. The ground floor is designed to accommodate public teaching modules, including specialized classrooms, shared reading spaces, lecture halls, and multifunctional halls. The upper levels are reserved for regular classrooms and flexible teaching spaces. While meeting the practical teaching needs, the design encourages exploration and communication through diverse, permeable indoor and outdoor shared spaces, fostering students' comprehensive and personalized development. It provides endless possibilities for future teaching scenarios.
多维布局 · 层叠共享
As the hub of campus vitality, the sports arena utilizes both above-ground and underground spaces to house facilities such as a badminton court, a swimming pool, a basketball court, and a rooftop recreational platform. It offers students and teachers a diverse range of indoor and outdoor activity areas. The integrated design of the rooftop and facades is smooth and dynamic, igniting a passion for sports and presenting a lively campus scene full of vitality.
功能复合 · 立体集约
The Art Center adheres to a holistic design principle, making the most of vertical space beneath its graceful curved forms. It vertically arranges a 1,000-seat auditorium, a multifunctional small theater, and a rooftop open-air theater from bottom to top. These three major functional spaces have a compact layout, with relatively independent yet closely connected zones. The raised design of the entrance lobby doubles as seating for the multifunctional small theater. The undulating profiles of the indoor small theater and the auditorium roof cleverly provide the possibility for seating in the open-air theater below, facilitated by the natural drop of a metal mesh framework from above. This design creates an outdoor spatial interface for the open-air theater. Both indoor and outdoor vertical spaces are maximally integrated, resulting in a highly complex, multi-dimensional building with a compact footprint.
自由人文 · 律动校园
The apartment area adopts an expansive S-shaped layout, enclosing two relatively independent yet closely connected courtyards. The rhythmic facades define informal campus spaces, presenting a more engaging architectural expression and a humanistic, romantic aspect.
The overall facade system of the campus features a base tone of white honeycomb aluminum panels, creating a modern and pure character for the campus. It is accentuated with warm gradient bright colors such as orange and yellow in certain areas, along with the warm texture of wood grain imprints, adding a touch of warmth and human sensibility to the campus.
