Magazine or newspaper inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
It's for an essay in the bilingual newspaper named 栩栩多多 (The New York Times for kids, China Edition). It shows how architects renovated and upgraded a primary school in China. I painted the floor plan as an open paper box and illustrated four other specific design features to lead the whole transformation, including Hybrid Spaces, Activity Windows, Rooftop Garden, and Cantilevered Classroom.
