ARCH-ARQ: In Beijing, Work Begins on Nature-Inspired School by OPEN architecture

Garden School, Beijing, China

A 45,000-square-meter public middle school designed by OPEN architecture broke ground in August in the new town of Changyang, in Beijing’s Fangshan District. The competition-winning design is the first major commission for partners Li Hu (who had been a partner at Steven Holl Architects) and Huang Wenjing (who had worked for Pei Cobb Freed & Partners).
The project is part of an initiative spearheaded by Wang Shi, head of Vanke, China’s largest real-estate developer, to create 10 significant buildings in Beijing. Vanke co-funded the project, which is called Garden School, with the Fangshan government and co-developed it with COFCO Corporation.
