Traversing over a campus river, Bridge Learning Center, the newest addition to Yancheng Foreign Language School, doubles as a multi-level pedestrian bridge to promote connectivity between both sides of the river. The school originally considered the 7600-square-meter learning complex somewhere else in the campus. However, we the architects proposed the site over the campus river. Once a mere physical barrier, the river now, along with the new building, becomes the central place of the campus, fusing nature, people and school activities all together for a more integral campus experience.
