Distinct from regular Chinese primary schools, we introduced an open garden in center of the campus. The natural topographical feature gives steps, grass slopes, elevated floors, together with corridors, creating space for all-day activities. Pupils are encouraged to discover and learn from nature. Hexagon-shaped classrooms are used to support the thematic teaching requirement of the school. Partition panels between classrooms can be removed, allowing the classroom to expand, even to corridors, responding to teaching requirement and the unique climate character of Chengdu.
