PRIMARY SCHOOL FOR SCIENCES AND BIODIVERSITY in Boulogne-Billancourt, France by chartier dalix

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: chartier dalix

A primary school and gymnasium with their own natural environment.
The project has been designed as part of a particularly innovative programme, environmentally speaking. The concept of the building relies on the development of a primary landscape which would draw its textures and components from the wider landscape in which it is set. In this way it becomes an urban enclave which stands apart: an elevated landscape in which an indigenous environment grows freely, a sort of urban canopy, sheltered, but also protected by people.
