UArchitects has, in cooperation with LENS°ASS architecten from Hasselt , won a competition for a new school building The Bridge in Bocholt, Belgium. The special sustainable school is in the form of a circle in an effort to engage the neighborhood into the school with activities and possibilities of an extension.

More on this project after the break.

The program of the sustainable school is a reflection of the neighborhood.  It is designed in such a way as to be flexible for a variety of uses within the sphere of education.  The school is intended to be used as a theater as well as for evening education.  In the evening it is a light beacon, giving visitors and uses a sense of safety.  It is not a welcome gesture to the society but it also forms a bridge to the future with a desire to create new experiences for education.
