Experimental Training Base of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (Dexing)
In line with "the structure transformation and function reconstruction, cultural shape, ecological construction" principle，the Experimental Training Base of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (Dexing) has conducted reconstruction to the old building complex that used to be the communist labor college. It completely retained the brick-concrete construction of the first and the second floor of the original building, and built the east-west steel structure architecture on the second floor to the north-south layout of the original buildings. The overlapping of old and new buildings forms a rich three-dimensional courtyard space and creates a new image of visual space. Teaching, experiment, experience and other functions of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) were added in the new building complex, which was successfully transformed into a TCM experimental training base.
Following the principle of historical "authenticity", the renovation and renewal reflect the cultural value and characteristics of the times carried by the building through the authentic expression of new and old materials, traditional and modern techniques, which meet the new functional requirements through structural reinforcement and renewal of the outer building envelope.
