From the architect. To design in a site within the city limits enables us to test spatial strategies of occupation and organization that are only possible outside the city of São Paulo: a spread out building open to the landscape. The school was organized on a perpendicular axis to the street. The main program was divided into two blocks vertically articulated by a ramp.

The designed space creates a visual path: the ramps look to the landscape, the opposite side of the valley, taking full advantage of the topographic situation. The sports block stands at the lower level and allows the didactic block to be in a higher level. Wood panels protect the school against sun and rain and also soften the rigidity of the pre-fabricated elements.

The building’s desirable organization is due to its location in the city’s periphery.

Another incredible school and another architectural gem to come out of Brazil. There is incredible work going on there.

Only one remark, would have been much nicer if photographed with the people inside.

ARCHITEKTUR: Grenzwertig brachialer Schulbau. Brasialianische Moderne von GrupoSP in der Tradition des Brutalismus: http://bit.ly/gFyNwV

The south part of Brazil has many good architects practicing nowadays. Many of these guys were students of titans like Paulo Mendes da Rocha at USP. But good architecture isn't the product of good architects only. It comes mainly from a society with laws advanced enough, clients cultured enough and an economy stable enough to pave the way. The north part of the country still sees a different reality, unfortunately...

I think latin american architecture is in the world avant-garde today. congratulations!

toba · December 03, 2010

i have to say it, i envy brasilians, i dont care if u are better than us in footbal because i dont care about a mass distractor of society, but as argentinean i would love to see projects like this in argentina. Colombia, Brazil and Chile are leading the way in a latin america in search of autenticity, in the meanwhile other countries of latin america are fighting for old ideological issues of other countries that dont let us grow, dont let us look for our identity, an identity that will give us a union never seen before. Despite all the problems and diferences, i hope that some day, all countries of south america can show the world through architecture our past, present and future.
