The design is a regeneration approach targeting at de-centralization, treats each small learning community within the project as an image independent from one another and creates a montage of spaces within the existing architectural framework, superseding the rigid institution building with a dynamic education architecture. The pilot project consists of five open and flexible learning communities, each presented in different colors and placemaking adaptable to student ages and learning programs, aiming at motivating this leading school to evolve to the cutting edge of learning environment.
