Project Summary

Indoor – Outdoor

Site-responsive school

The project for a school for 400 students takes advantage of the topography of the site, introducing reinforced concrete slabs on different levels that adapt to the slope.

Grouped as independent units with three walls forming a C-shaped space, the repetitive modules are based on a regular grid, changing position according to programmatic requirements. The construction technique is simple and can be pursued in stages, and equipped to minimize the impact of seismic activity.
