community & architecture

With the aim of enhancing self-recognition for students, the stage of Taojinshan Primary School is design for both student to perform and school’s announcement. The form of the stage reacts to the site, where the existing school and the sports field do not relate to each other. We tried to redefine the relationship by positioning the stage to face the sports field with a prominent axis, to provide a solemn focus point. At the same time, the back of the stage diverts the circulation space and merge with existing structure to use as stage storage.
