Shenzhen Futian Hongling Mangrove School is embraced by a dynamic city fabric that located in between the Shenzhen CBD and Hong Kong. To implement a modern learning model, the design provides a plenitude of outdoor learning spaces instead of traditional indoor learning environment. It creates a ‘Futian loop’ that connects the classrooms, recreational spaces and social area as a huge interactive campus through three functional loops, namely ‘Knowledge Loop’, ‘Social Loop’ and ‘Physical Loop’. The integration encourages interaction and outdoor learning to foster an efficient learning process.
The design adopts a people-centric approach that includes a series of energy-efficient measures to encounter the subtropical climate characteristics. High performance glazing glasses and external shadings are used to reduce the heat gain, whilst photovoltaic canopies are designed to provide solar power to reusable energy for the campus. With the porous design of the building base, the design provides cross natural ventilation, as well as optimises the air quality and reducing the risks of infectious diseases.
