Danish architecture in Chinese context
The new international primary school in Hi-Tech Zone, Chengdu, represents a unique merge between Nordic architecture, Danish pedagogy and Chinese culture and traditions. It is located in a brand-new district and as a part of Chengdu Century Park. The significant star-shaped building will become an international landmark for the area.
A school developed with user involvement
RUM has designed the new primary school in a joint consultancy with Horsens Architects. The assignment was founded in a sister city alliance between Chengdu and Horsens, Denmark.
As part of the design process, RUM gave several talks about trends for Danish learning spaces and we visited several newer schools in Chengdu. As part of the design process, RUM organized user involvement through mini-workshops with participants of various stakeholders.
RUM have also, in cooperation with Horsens Architects, designed a new kindergarden in Chengdu. The kindergarten is built in the same region and is designed as the “little sister” to Chengdu Horsens Primary School. Read more about Chengdu Horsens Kindergarden.
