Final stage of education campus master plan implementation creates 21st century school 

Perkins Eastman’s latest project on the Concordia International School Shanghai (CISS) campus is a new 12,720 sq m (129,200 sq ft) high school. As the culmination of a 10-year, multi-phased expansion of the world-class education campus, the high school is a fitting architectural expression of the evolution of design, learning, and sustainability; it is what a 21st century school is supposed to be. The new high school comprises a variety of academic, athletic, and administrative functions in a fully integrated six-storey complex.

Envisioned as a prototype for 21st century learning and a state-of-the-art college preparatory environment, the new high school building is sited on the last parcel of land on campus. It includes a bridge at concourse level, symbolically linking the school’s past, present, and future. It includes 20 classrooms, four science classrooms, a world language lab, and a number of seminar / group instruction rooms of varying sizes. A media commons ‘bridge’ connects the new facility with the original shared facilities pavilion. It also includes a 10,800 sq ft (1,000 sq m) gymnasium containing two full-sized basketball courts, a weight room, a dance studio, plus a unique physical education interactive space and an outdoor climbing wall.

The new building is an example of Concordia’s emboldened commitment to ‘green leadership.’ CISS viewed the design and construction of their new high school as an opportunity to redesign the entire campus’ heating and cooling system by using highly efficient geothermal technology. The school expects a 25-30% savings on energy costs. The overall demand on heating and cooling is also reduced through the incorporation of green roofs over 40% of the newly constructed roof surface. The largest portion of the green roof is landscaped over light monitors located above the gymnasium / events space. Other environmentally responsible features and materials include daylighting, natural ventilation, and materials including bamboo and natural rubber flooring.
