Using concepts generated during the design of another international school for a US-based education developer, ESA worked with Wonder by Design to leverage lessons learned and apply them to this 26-acre site south of Beijing. The second in a series of anticipated projects for this client, the school will educate 1,100 middle and high school students. A performing and visual arts building and athletic center are connected and anchored by a large campus entry plaza and reflecting pool. Throughout the campus, elevated walkways connect all buildings, allowing for sheltered circulation throughout the site. To encourage students’ education and growth beyond the classroom, the campus includes residences for high school students, as well as faculty.
