“Among School Children” is a Poem by William Butler Yeats (1989) that portrays a beautiful school past, thought as reference during the design process, to be updated.
From the analysis of the topographic, urbanistic and orientation conditions of the plot, the proposed solution is adopted in order to achieve:
- Autonomy in independence of operation of the different functional units (primary, child, administration and common uses).
- Creation of identity and relationship with the landscape, trying to make the building contribute to the relationship of scales between urban and rural landscape.
Following these objectives, a first building for children’s education is proposed located to the north of the plot next to the area of greater urban accessibility. This building is arranged in a “U” shape with two wings of children’s classrooms in direct relation with their courtyards and outside classrooms arranged parallel to the north facade. The discontinuity of the blocks allows generating two access possibilities; being used as the main access for this first phase the one located towards the north. The composition closes a gym block located at the southern end attached to the primary block through a covered porch.
