Winning proposal for a school expansion
The project is based on an efficient implementation that follows the geometry of radial organization and creates a set of new volumes that when synchronized with the existing creates simultaneously three important but distinct program bodies that are the complemented with three different exterior spaces as open patios. The building thus clearly organizes the essential aspects of the project while seeking to consolidate well the difference in height of the land and while seeking to dialogue in a more natural way with the existing buildings in which it slopes. Plastically the buildings will have a different type of materiality from the other, however, in a fragment of memory, the system “brise soleil” will be used in the facades because this approach already exists in the rest of the school, but also because it is very effective way to solve the enormous solar exposition of the place.
