A school is a home of learning – theater of the imagination.

The identity of the school suggests a dialogue between order and freedom. Order through the grid of specialized pavilions – classrooms and freedom through the integration and informal character of the cylindrical volume at the conjunction of the two axii.

While obtaining a new equilibrium between formal and informal, a discrete visual control is also established.

In order for the formal space to be of a relatable scale the classrooms are grouped in cluster. That organization establises a smaller scale which is crucial for the young students
