The futurism of the floating Bauhaus campus

Explore campus space in innovative and experimental way.


This design is to make sure the ground floor space could be open to the surrounding residents and students, creating an open and flowing free space for activities, to match the speed of the side trains and also to keep the existing vision without being obstructed at the same time .
Through the design technique, the floating units can combine the flow of the train with the mass of the building through the sense of speed and the floating façade , create a futuristic and fluid campus .

Regarding the volume of the building itself, in addition to the basic design techniques related to Bauhaus geometric segmentation and simple facades, we continue to retain the traditional and unchangeable using . For the future campus planning, we have adopted “fuzzy zoning” and ” The design technique of “complex moving lines” is used to connect the units and spaces. The technique of complex path is our transformation of the future “multiple characteristics” and “non-unique solutions”, and it is also a comment on the infinite possibilities. The free interweaving and flow of the dynamic lines and the space will create new possibilities for various campus spaces.To the future campus of Bauhaus, rather than an environment with only one answer.


Bauhaus is famous for the teaching method of  learning from experiment. It initiated the pioneering of artists and craftsman as a teacher at the same time .This education method which emphasizes theory and practice has influenced the later design department education . We will explore campus space in innovative and experimental way.

  1. To the site – In order to keep the connection with the adjacent train tracks and to maintain the prevent residents’ view of the base , so that they can perceive the existence of the train and the speed.
  2. To the space – Strengthen the sense of sight, auditory and the flowing of people in the space . Students, teachers and residents could rethink and experience profound freedom here.
  3. To Bauhaus – Converting the original Bauhaus architectural vocabulary and to reorganized them , jumping out of the frame to create something new . Open the campus moderately , than that people can freely organize various small activities here . Make the Bauhaus campus become a new important city node .


  • City connection – Main connecting road around the base
  • City node – road junction
  • Accessibility – participation of human and the base
  • Commemorative – surrounding route and central issue of sight
  • Environmental noise – noise from train movement interference
  • Human oriented – space reserving
  • Border – indentation of base border
  • Possibility of soft dilatation – extension of green space
  • Permeability of base – axils penetrate the base
  • Defining the scope – create spatial dimension
  • Vision – correspond with surrounding skyline
  • Space permeability – connection of space and space

Design concept

  1. Use geometrically derived graphics to fragment and discover unit space to use basic analysis to get scope reconstruction
  2. Keep the bottom of the building empty and raise it so that independent units with different sizes could float above the ground level .
  3. Using horizontal and vertical frame features interspersed to show the form changes of contemporary aesthetics.

Also , create new spaces by using the interspersed voids and complicated path to achieve the alternating between reality and virtuality , creating a floating image.

Glass, bright white ceramics and black metal are used as materials to bring the futuristic  facade into the line facade formed by the unit.


The concept of our building elevation is transform from the train speed beside the site , the flowing curves increased the sense of future . The split-level design creates the complexity of the panels , which make residents and student could both keep their area indeed .
