Fine Arts School / ROW Studio

ROW Studio shared with us their new Fine Arts School design for the Universidad Autonoma Benito Juarez de Oaxaca. Their proposal in posed as an alternative to contrast the actual project for the state school, which is already under construction. For ROW’s proposal, the school aims to create all the necessary spaces for the teaching the varying techniques and fields of artistic study, while preserving the green areas of the campus.

More about the school and more images after  the break.

The slopes are an extension of the greenery from which the classrooms seem to appear, giving the impression that the space emerges as mounds similar to the primitive idea of the pyramid.  The large expansions of greenery provide the opportunity for students to bring their studies beyond the confines of the classroom, allowing the natural environment to inspire some of their work.
