http://www.aiahk.org/wp-admin/edit.phpThe King George V School Performing Arts Block is a 2014 AIA Hong Kong award-winning project by Ronald Lu & Partners.
The building embraces a majestic 18m-high Banyan tree in the form of the student canteen, which occupies the lower two storeys of the new block. An amphitheatre was carefully designed around the tree, allowing space to flow from the Performing Tree Deck up to the first floor of the outdoor patio, providing a seamless connection to the open grounds of the main campus. Balconies outside the music and drama studios on each floor function as breakout spaces and performing pods while overlooking the tree and the performance deck below.
Red, yellow and blue coloured façades make reference to abstract expressionism and add vibrancy to the campus, while a horizontal brise soleil shields the inhabitants from the intense southern sun
