Bridge School

Bridge School / Li Xiaodong Atelier

In the small village of Xiashi in the Chinese province of Fujian you find a very interesting building project. The tantalizing building is a bridge but at the same time a school and social center for the village. The main concept of the building is to enliven an old village community and to sustain a traditional culture. Something I imagine is getting harder and harder in a ever faster growing Chinese economy/society. It’s a stunning building designed by Li Xiaodong Atelier.

I’ve got a feeling that there is a bunch of Chinese projects to be written about, please let me know if you got any tips!

    […] It’s a school. It’s a meeting place for the village. It’s bloody brilliant. Via Leave comment Twitter Facebook Short URL Permalink Tags: […]
