New School of Pacentro
An example of innovative and safe school
An architecture with a circular shape that recalls Munari’s famous phrase “the first thing a child draws looks like a circle”, which fits almost mimicking the surrounding Apennine landscape. An artificial “dune” surrounds the building like a ring, gradually revealing it to the view of those who approach along the access path.
The building of about 800 m2 distributed on a single floor will house eight classrooms, five for elementary school, and three for secondary school, for a total of about one hundred students.
Starting from the large central atrium of the square, all the other spaces of the school, classrooms, and laboratories will be generated, designed following the concept of teaching based on the theory of the “learning landscape”, with visible and structured interior spaces for learning, flexible and with transparent walls with learning areas released from the traditional classroom concept.
