Rethinking New Prototype of Architecture School

The development of workshop machines, such as CNC router, 3d printing machine and robot arm, provoke architecture students to combine their theory with practical experiment. In this project, we try to introduce the operation system and spatial prototype that we can learn from the factory into our school design, to create new type of architecture school. With introducing RnD system, we imagine this building can actively respond to the 21st century requirements of architecture school.
