Fine Arts School Attached to China Central Academy of Fine Arts
The new 136.000 sqm campus of the Fine Arts School Attached to China Central Academy of Fine Arts is located north-east of Beijing. Some buildings of the ensemble had been structurally completed when Synarchitects was getting involved in the project.
The current completed new buildings consist of extensions to the central building, a refectory, connecting bridges and the entrance building. In addition the landscape and the sporting fields had been designed and made.
The conceptual idea segments visually the central buildings long cubature with extensions. Edged in the sections and connected with bridges we push courtyards in the volume to bring daylight and fresh air into the building. Big gaps between the studios and the practice rooms and a varying facade design generate the impression of being in an ensemble rather than standing in front of a space-consuming wall.
The centre of the existing shell construction was pulled down to create a representative entrance. Three partly glazed bridges generate an attractive situation and will connect the administration building (second building phase) with the dormitories and the sporting grounds.
In the second building phase there will be a tribune and sport field, as well as a arena, gallery, administration building, houses for the teachers and a hotel for visitors.
