The integration and superposition of public space system is the response of this scheme to the characteristics of school buildings. On the basis of different functional zones, the corridors of public nature are used to connect different areas, and at the same time, the corridors are extended in their own scales, horizontal and vertical directions, thus forming abundant spatial variations. In this way, a variety of public space systems are constructed by using vertical transportation in series with different levels of public areas, including the first floor overhead, second and third floor ramp corridors, roof activity areas, etc.

With regard to color, considering the characteristics of the south weather, the school as a whole uses light gray as the main tone, and combines the stairs with color changes to enhance the lively atmosphere of the campus, creating lively campus environment.
