This new school will
be frequented by pupils aged between 13 and 16. They are in an
exciting period, being on the threshold of adult life. Feelings
are strong, connected both to things well known and safe, as
well as to what is open, bigger and unknown.
At the site, the firmly organized building with its surrounding
asphalt areas easily associates with everyday school routine,
habits of living and working together. The green open field
nearby associates to something different: Sunshine, long
distance views, free walks and openness in a non-organized space.
My aim was to create a simple sculptural form which connects
and refers to both existential spheres. It should not divide
them, rather point out characters of different values, and offer
a meeting point between the two.
