YONGXIN SECONDARY SCHOOL PROTOTYPE
JIANGXI PROVINCE


The Jian county schools are 4 secondary schools with a total of 3,300 students and 1,800 live-in students from nearby rural areas. The design is a school prototype that can be adapted to different program requirements and different site conditions. The initial strategy is to create a perimeter building that frames a large courtyard. This wall, much like a traditional old city wall contains the inner public life of the school. Additional public and social functions of the school such as the library, the canteen, the art block and the administration building, push into this space activating the courtyard.
