This project is characterized by four “Rings”, each of which is defined by two levels with different thicknesses, rounding different playgrounds. The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed. It was inspired by the shapes of tropical plants and trees in the area, taking us to a recreational atmosphere of games, educational exchanges, etc.
The open space created by the building’s form lends a durable space to both students and public alike and generates a dynamic exchange between public and private.
The school projects an image of a colorful, fluid, light and peaceful architecture, contained within a transparent division that connects the public outside area and the interior of the building.
