Located on the urban periphery of , this musical school sits in a landscape that is both rural and urban. In this setting, the school brings together many of music schools that were scattered across several municipalities. Hidden by the terrain, the building borrows from the surrounding rural farms, barns, and small factories and translates them into a contemporary language. The details are simple and clean with a hint of rustication ie. the pre-patina copper green.
