Based on the analysis and research on the current educational model and educational concept in China, we put forward the design concept of “new settlement campus”, hoping to create a more independent, open, multi-directional shared educational space, and to build a new type of campus that is more unique, iconic and public.

Based on the analysis of educational units and public activity spaces, we propose the concept of autonomous units: The primary school and the junior high school are relatively independent and closely related, and are connected by a “campus complex” which contains other auxiliary spaces and venues for rich community activities.

To enrich the campus space, we intersperse some interesting spaces inside the campus. Taking into account the functionality of each educational zone and students’ needs for personalized presentations, we propose a group model of “vibrant platform”. In order to facilitate the communication between teachers and students and create an open and shared campus space, we endow the “hub corridor” in the middle with the mission of carrying communication and exchange, and make it a “campus catwalk” shared by teachers and students. Through spatial techniques such as atrium, large steps, and interspersed interesting stairs, we connect the seven shared courtyards in the campus, turning the original boring traffic space into a dynamic central axis for staying and activities.
