The Ceremony of CSA 2022
VIRTUARCH interprets sustainability not only in an ecological sense, but also in respect to financial sustainability and sustainability of future use. The design of DULWICH in Zhuhai is a good example for VIRTUARCH’s skills to transform a school program into a playful, characteristic school environment where each space has its clear identity. The students enjoy the freedom to move through highly interconnected spaces, have view lines connecting inside and outdoor areas, experience courtyards, roof terraces and voids. VIRTUARCH masters the harvesting and staging of natural daylight, the combination of ancient and natural materials with modern materials and techniques, giving the DULWICH Zhuhai building a strong cultural imprint and a truly humanistic and holistic approach.

VIRTUARCH congratulates its school partners for having been nominated and having won awards. It’s a great honor to work for the leading schools in China and to realize great educational projects together with them. Good architecture is, after all, always an expression of a good cooperation between the Architect and the Owner.
