PLAN:B: 这所学校的用地由其独特的地形决定,设计师希望以此来进行项目设计。设计师把年幼孩子的教师设置在被原生森林环绕的山坡上,把年长孩子的教室设置在可以看到开阔景色的山坡上,在中部高地周边设计了自助餐厅和图书馆,其顶部就是一个巨大的自然操场。

PLAN:B:  The lot available for this school was mainly defined by its particular topography and we wanted that to determine the program. On the hillside closed by native forest we located the classrooms for the younger children, on the hillside that had an open view of the landscape, the classrooms for the older children, and in the perimeter of the central plateau we placed the cafeteria and the library.  The top of the central plateau was left as a large natural playground.

Since the beginning we wanted to mix the landscape or topographic diversity with the kid’s growth, and the fact that they changed classrooms across the landform as they got older. Merging time and displacement with the landscape, in a manner that the kids could perceive the difference between being young and near to the forest, and growing older and acquiring a more open relationship with the environment.

In this particular project, the earthworks had a starring role in the construction, reason for which we decided to make a longitudinal land terrace following the topographic forms: by moving a little and filling in a little, and trying to be as less aggressive to the soil as possible.  This way, all the school was constructed on the same level, avoiding flights of stairs, for the children with learning and/or motor difficulties to move around from the upper ramp with no problems.

This school had to grow by stages. In view of this circumstance, we proposed to make a large, one-leveled land terrace that could function as a playground during the first stage, while leaving space available for the school to grow without trouble.

This project has a modular or relational pattern, which is in this case, a rectangular classroom that adapts to fit the land terrace. The module includes a backyard and a front hallway that faces the landscape. In this case the modules have been connected by a flat cover that defines the hallways and circulation areas, providing shelter from natural elements such as rain and direct sunlight.
