The Project receives the visitor from a square, a lookout space that becomes a witness of the new landscape in which the community lives. Within the project the pedagogical and cultural spaces are their most important value in the vacuum that complements them, free and flexible spaces suitable for the meeting, formed from yards and gardens allowing to extend their activities to the common space, the space of all, Is understood as a tradition learned and that has been lost the use of the patio and hall of the traditional housing of Peñol and this is taken as an articulating space in the project, an area to share.

Landscape as primary material is an integral part of spatial construction, taking light and shadow, air, vegetation and the landscape itself which is intrinsic part of the site, these primary elements in themselves require the absence of the built, the Empty, to be able to inhabit it, gardens, yards and squares in them can be evidenced that passage of the time that marks the rhythms and moments, full and empty. The project is in a natural context of transition between urban and rural, this is built from materials and finishes in sight, where the same structure is the final face, propose textures and finishes honest and austere, which Give the maximum protagonism to the natural atmosphere, it becomes a canvas that receives the exuberance of the vegetation and the colors of the culture.

The Educational Park becomes a space that recognizes its own landscape, showing it with the capacity and the kindness to receive the activities and experiences, which will allow to create and to consolidate the Memoria and fragmented identity
