The new San Lazzaro Campus Kid
A new piece of the city
The school buildingwants to create a unitary complex (schools, gym, auditorium) through a valuable architecture. A building in which the architecture integrates the mechanical, structural and technological components, and which strategically responds to the redevelopment and construction in sequential phases.
Light, colors, dynamic and flexible spaces, courtyards and gardens, the contact with nature: these are the ingredients for an ideal comfort environment where young kids but also middle school children can grow both intellectually and physically. The spatial distribution generates a series of space and opportunities where interior and exterior, built and natural, solid and void are thought as flexible and perfectly integrated, both in classrooms and in connective and collective spaces.
The two school buildings create “educating” spaces where the child is guided on his personal path of growth from primary to middle school. The distribution system does not include the traditional “corridors”, but inclusive and flexible spaces, thoroughly integrated with the rooms for normal and special education, as well as with shared areas and those at the service of the community. The campus becomes a socio-cultural tool, where the architecture itself becomes a device for communicating and spread the knowledge for those who use it.
