New Campus in Shahe, Central University of Finance and Economics

Designed as a hinge between teaching area and dormitory area, the dinning hall and the activity center not only define a public space as a street between them but also form a sinking plaza with their stepped back roofs. As a circle area around the kitchen, the dinning area could receive maximum view, ventilation and sunlight. The single exterior corridor layout also offers the dormitories good ventilation and lighting condition. Besides show respect to traditional buildings, the pitched roofs also act as the framework for solar panels. Backing on the north, the four dormitories introduce large platforms for students to communicate and rest.
