Colegio San Francisco Javier in Puerto Montt, Chile by Martín Hurtado Arquitectos Asociados

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Martín Hurtado Arquitectos Asociados

The San Francisco Javier School is an institution related to the Compañía de Jesus, which founded this school around 1850, in the center of the emerging city of Puerto Montt. It was in fact the first church and parish, and part of its facilities are now a National Monument. The development and densification of the center, and the transfer of its inhabitants to residential areas in new neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city, forced the relocation of the school. This new building is located in the heart of high Pelluhue, a new residential district located east of the city.

Secondary School Navalmoral de la Mata in Caceres, Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

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.

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

The Infinity Centre, the new campus for Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School senior students, is derived from the initial idea that the library, a learning hub, is central to the school. We also wanted a building that offered protection from a windswept site and signified the merging of two schools, Penleigh Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Essendon Grammar School for boys.
