An introverted academy building was created, with the play of outer opacity and internal transparency serving as a major motif. Simplicity of form can be seen in the cubic mass housing both classrooms and offices for staff and faculty. A high-performance, double skin façade diffuse sunlight throughout the interior, without obstructing views. Each side of the building is encapsulated by different perforated panel fold patterns, creating an ever-changing play of shadow and light. Entry finds a central atrium, housing hanging staircases, that is expansive and well-lit, connecting every level.
