Founded in 1994, the International School of Tianjin is a standard kindergarten to twelfth grade international school. The school offers an exceptional education for the expanding, culturally diverse international community in Tianjin. In 2018, the entire school building was given a new facade.
From the onset of the design, it was decided the bright red and yellow colors of the school emblem, a dragon and ball, should be incorporated into the facade. The new design continues the original exterior color palette, but rather than plaster and paint, high-quality Swisspearl fiber-cement panels were utilized in eleven color tones.
