We consider the whole building as a floating micro campus with vertical communities. Various architectural elements become a series of continuous and changing public spaces. On one side is a teaching building formed by stacking standard classrooms, while on the other side there are customized studios as featured plug-ins hanging from the main board. The floating volumes release a flowing ground space from the site, which has become a favorite place for students to hang out. The continuous semi-outdoor space provides a unique stage for art performances, band performances and fashion shows.
