Big Platform / Mini Forest

Nanhai District is the largest district in Foshan city.  Its total area is 1074 km2, with a population of 2.6 million.  The Nanhai Central Elementary School, 31900 m2 in size, needs to provide not only educational, but also community recreational programs.  Sports and parking facilities are shared with the community after school.  To avoid conflicts between different user groups, the design proposed platforms on two levels, allowing effective management.  At the same time, the wide corridor system, large platforms and mini forest, provide students the freedom to run around and explore.  The school design has proven to be such a great success that the local educational bureau uses it as a design benchmark.

“大平台·小树林“

这是一个庞杂的小学,之所以这样说,是因为这个小学从投标开始就承担了太多的社会责任,这也同时带来了问题,一方面作为城市中心区的小学,在如今寸土寸金的年代,公共设施都应该错峰提供给周边居民使用,这是好的;然而如何解决小学的管理和这种社会功能的矛盾呢?设计的探讨就是要承担责任的同时,还能给小学生们最安全最自由最广阔的活动与学习天地。平台、树林、分层管理都这样诞生了,也许最后呈现的外表结果没有百分之百的达到最初的设想,但我们经历了一次成功的、无关形式的、责任与功能的协调过程。
