The proposal has its basis in its rational strategy, seeking to fully respond to the program needs and specificities of the briefing. The school is designed as a single and coherent system, that responds efficiently to all variables, whether by the way it addresses the topography, both for its implementation and volume, constructive phasing strategy, sustainability, orientation, distribution, organization or materials used.

Despite its strong pragmatic character, reflected in the systematization of the design, the project does not limits itself to a mere functional response. The proposal seeks to use the potential of Architecture to create an inspiring, referential and relevant school. Therefore, the architecture contributes to the promotion of dynamic experience and positive use, enhancing the motivational and educational environment, either for students as for teachers.
