From the architect. The new 136,000 sqm campus of the Fine Arts School was added on to China Central Academy of Fine Arts, located north-east of Beijing.

Some buildings of the ensemble had already been structurally completed when Synarchitects got involved in the project.

The new buildings consist of extensions to the central building, a refectory, connecting bridges and the entrance building. In addition, the landscape and the sporting fields had been designed and constructed. The conceptual idea visually divides the central building's long cubature with extensions. By adding courtyards to the volume, we bring daylight and fresh air into the building.

The centre of the existing shell construction was pulled down to create a representative entrance. Three partly glazed bridges a dynamic situation and will connect the administration building (second building phase) with the dormitories and the sporting grounds.
