Design and construction of orphan classroom in Sri Lanka

Follow china’s public welfare projects, tapping overseas potential, planning future projects; domestic project development: focusing on domestic public welfare, setting up practical projects, and promoting achievements. Design and construction of classrooms for the orphans in Sri Lanka Tsinghua University went to Sri Lanka to promote public welfare. They build a house for the children in the village of Siyambalagaswewa in the north-central province. The trip to the village was very busy from morning to night. In addition to visiting the church in Nagali, I learned about the local basic education and the different orphanages and special schools, as well as the heads of different institutions.


Exchanged interviews. Understand the needs of the people and build better houses accordingly. Since the building materials in the village are all made in different small workshops, we went around the houses of many craftsmen and musicians in the village to understand the price and processing methods of the concrete, brick and timber structures needed for the scheme, and communicate with the local heads to confirm the completion of the scheme. Cycle. Not only do we need to solve the material problem, but our construction also needs more social support.


For the implementations of the ownership and building functions of the project, we held talks with Nilu, the head of the local public welfare organization, and finally determined the functions of the “library”, “small classroom” and “activity center”. We clarified the ownership of the building after the completion of the issue, to ensure public welfare while allowing public education. The development of the education campaign was successful. now every child can really regard the house as a refuge. Based on the in-depth investigation in Sri Lanka, an educational building project was designed independently by a professional team and built in cooperation with China Construction Decoration Group. It is now about to be completed.


Based on the study of traditional footbridges in Guilin area, through the interdisciplinary study of architecture, landscape, geology and so on, the public welfare research projects rooted in the land and square land are put forward.

Peer Space in Longsheng

Longsheng middle school was originally the Longsheng civil middle school, which was established in 1942. The school located in halfway up the Liangzi mountain in Longsheng. It is a campus of 80+ acres and more than 20,000 building areas, with 38 high school classes and about 2000 students and teachers. The campus, which is built around the mountain and has many towering camphor trees, is beautiful and tranquil. Students study hard and enjoy the life here.


The designers use the physical space fully and there are many details that are quite extraordinary of the design. Like the wall where the book shelves are is made of soft wood and has a latex paint layer on it. Students could put decorations on it or stab some pictures to make a photos wall. Like the fence of the attic is made of the iron net on that people can tie things. Like there are rows of small holes on the back of display wall to hang bags. Like the color of the windows is a beautiful blue and the door is made of a special Dongbu.


The most important point is that the volunteer is the volunteer photographer in Longsheng middle school the last year. She came here again, with her passion and the love to this place, to build the new place. With the plants she brought in, the original warm place got more romantic odors.

Bridge and Land ——The Exhibition and Academic Meeting.

We held the exhibition and the meeting that focused on the research and models of the bridge and land, many teachers, devoted scholars in relevant fields, from the college of architecture had been invited to share their ideas.


The annually Beijing International Design Week opened in October, which attracted crowds of people. Three high school students who came from Longsheng, a city in Guilin, showed up in the design week with their achievements. Yiyuan Shi, a student in Tsinghua, is one of the curators of the exhibition of Bridge and Land. Initially, She was asked by some villagers to help to restructure an old bridge. To learn more about the constructed culture of the traditional footbridge, she went around nearly 100 old footbridges in 2 years in Hunan, Guangxi and Guizhou province.


September 17, 2018, Bridge and Land——the opening ceremony and project sharing session of the traditional footbridge in Guilin area were held in the new building of the college of the architecture of THU. We are honored to invited Jie Zhang, LuKe Li, ZhengXu Zhou to take part in our sharing session and salon.


Yiyuan wants more than just get some academic achievements in her subjects. She hopes that the project could arouse local people’ consciousness of protecting those bridges. “‘Bridge and Land’ do not project that talks to itself. Concerning and protecting traditional footbridge needs many people to get together to keep working for a long time, needs locals, especially the young generation. Local people should have more of a say and more initiative.”

’The Box that Flies’ – design for a school campus

Currently under construction is a new type of modular design for an elementary school student dormitory in Cangxi County in Guangyuan, Sichuan. In May 2017, Sun Qiwei, Wu Xiaoyuan and Liu Zeyang – three students from Tsinghua School of Architecture visited Guangyuan for a preliminary site study. They investigated the existing buildings in the school and the site marked for construction. An evaluation of students’ need for campus residence was done to set design goals. Students stay in classroom-converted dormitories and a single bed is often crowded with two or three sleeping students.


The project site is located in Baiyi Town’s Wan-an Elementary School in Cangxi County, under the jurisdiction of Guangyuan, Sichuan. The site sits unobstructed on higher topography behind the village and is near to the road. Reusing a wedge-shaped base once supporting the school’s toilet, the new dormitory design’s massing shifts in relation to site conditions. The northern side is shielded from the sports field by a row of trees while the south-eastern side neighbors the road. The south-western edge is nearest to the administrative building. The design proposal connects the new dormitory to teaching and administrative blocks to better accommodate students’ movement. The trees on the north are retained as a buffer between dormitory and field. This green area will also provide space for student activities.


Our mode of operation encourages long-term construction projects, which creates a cycle of ‘practice, reflection and more practice’. We are led by a core group of committee members to accomplish various projects. Our organization consists of four teams and three main directions.
