Designed by AD+RG, Community College is located in Hong Kong, China. The form composes of various teaching blocks stacked spirally in the air, which are separated with sky gardens at different levels. The various blocks have different degrees of opacity. The degree of opacity is made possible by varying the density of ceramic painted dots patterned glass and the solid volumes. The opacity controls the degree of direct sunlight casting into the interior of the building with different degree of intensity.
The continuous spiral-chain of communal sky gardens could be perceived along the tower block periphery extending from the lower-ground floor to the upper-most floors. The gardens enrich the building elevation with a natural, pleasant environment and help to create a different open learning and communal environment.
