Nanjing International School

Nanjing International School

Nanjing, China


eiw have been successful in a shortlisted, international design competition for the redesign of the Early Years precinct at the Nanjing International School (NIS). We are excited in our first foray into China, working with a multi-cultural group of education leaders and teachers at an inclusive learning community.

Following a design thinking collaboration between NIS and NoTosh over the last 2 years, eiw approached a design concept by building upon the two stated goals –

-Putting student voice and choice at the centre

-Bursting the bubble  

eiw’s human-centred design solution focuses on the learning imperatives, not purely on organizational goals. It stretches the fabric of the school to move beyond enclosure, control and silos, to an environment of fluidity, inquiry, discovery, inclusion and a diversity of learning modes.
