Saturday, May 25th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

Children do not remember the classrooms in their school but the playing grounds, the corridors and the yards; on the other hand, they also remember the good teachers and some anecdotes with their fellow students. These memories, that accompany them for their whole life, depend very much on the Architecture because it makes possible to change into joyful what could be, sometimes, only sad or melancholic memories. The purpose in this project was to have a clean, bright and cheerful building.
