Architecture can be a tool to showcase an educational philosophy.

The north side of the school houses transparent thematic classrooms, the playground, and large event sites with stairs and seating, serving as an urban interface. Various educational functions combine together to show the city the school’s abundant teaching activities. The school showroom and sports facilities are open to the public when classes are not in session and serve as a community center. If space has the capacity to stimulate curiosity it can catalyse self-directed learning. To achieve this, we put together volumes with different functions, in order to create visual connections throughout the school triggering students’ curiosity. For example, the running tracks connect areas for art, reading, and sports. The central square also connects the swimming pool, the gymnasium, the lecture hall and other large volumes creating links of vision and experience.
