OPEN's latest project Shanfeng Academy in Suzhou, China has been completed. Situated in a new district of Suzhou, Shanfeng Academy is the cultural and sports center for a K-12 school, while serving the local community as an active cultural hub. The design features five buildings connected by flat-roofed walkways, creating voids in the form of four gardens. The voids provide breathable spaces for the high-density campus and act as un-inked areas in traditional Chinese landscape drawings. Serving nearly 2000 students, Shanfeng Academy provides a diverse mix of cultural and sports programs, including theater, gallery, library, sports center, dance and fitness rooms, swimming pool, and café.
