Text description provided by the architects. The composition of the complex separates two typologies: the classrooms and the comunal spaces. The bodies that contain the communal space are austere and well lit between greys and metallic whites.

The classrooms are resolved with an angled and folded roof that appears to receive the weight of the yard and produces a semi-buried state.

The roofs create artificial hills and offer different perspectives of the gardened horizon.
