Longjiang Central Primary School (Jinping Campus) is located at the foot of Jinping Mountain, Longjiang, Foshan. It was rebuilt from the existing Jinping Middle School in order to meet the growing demands for high-quality education in the central urban area. After the renovation, the lower grade campus can accommodate 20 classes of grades one and two.The design fully utilizes the advantage of the original campus adjacent to the Jinping Mountain Liyugang Park to create a campus that is deeply integrated with the park environment. The renovation takes the advantage of the site, extracting a series of natural elements from Liyugang Park in Jinping Mountain and bringing them back to the campus design. By integrating and interacting with the natural environment, a campus that learns in nature is formed. This "campus in the park" or the "park in the campus" builds a bridge for the first and second-year students to transition from kindergarten to primary school. On the premise of respecting and retaining the existing characteristics of the site,We adopted a lightweight design and plug-in approach to fully took the advantages of the existing site conditions and carefully made a micro-renovation of the campus.
