The school was conceived as a big house for learning, understood as a playful, engaging, intelligible object with which children can relate.

 

 

CONCEPT

 

Since architecture is a spatial art form, it can contribute to the development of creativity and spatial thought. Architecture shall therefore enable children to use their inborn imagination and to utilize their natural spontaneity in space.

A compact building, defined by the boundaries of a simple volume, designed with geometric rigor based on an optimized modular grid. The proposal is a unified space, clearly defined, identified and intelligible.

The compact scheme enhances the perception of architecture as a hole; at the same time it maximizes resources, and optimizes inner circulations and distribution.
