First, the school will be blanketed with an insulating green roof. Certain areas will then be fitted with a sloping green roofs that visually integrate the buildings into the park. Next, the architects decided to create a bridge between the old site and the new site, which is currently divided by a street. This will create a safe passage for the students while opening up space for a new public plaza.

By integrating the school and the park, the architects aim to give the students a gorgeous new place to learn, improve the site’s views and external access, and create a brand new public plaza that can be enjoyed by everyone. If only all schools could be taken to this level. The school is in construction right now, and is expected to open by next year
