Extension of primary school Tagliaferro in Florence, Italy by Fabio Capanni

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Article source: Fabio Capanni

A new volume, modest in size and designed to accommodate the canteen for the young pupils, implants itself in the pavilion system of the nursery school Tagliaferro, situated in San Piero a Sieve in the district of Florence. It lives as a fragment, working by difference towards the existing building although striving to be its own harmonious extension. Assuming the continuity with the logic of the pavilion system composition, the difference in materials between the brick-faced previous building and the plastered surfaces of the new construction, produces a tension intended to reestablish an interrupted dialogue with the site to which this architecture belongs. The stereometry of the diaphanous volumes, serene and austere reflection of the life that, in time, gave form and significance to those  lands, aspires to live again in the bare plaster and wood surfaces set to enclosure the geometrical space of the canteen.

School of Music of the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, Portugal by João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

When I first started working on this project I happened to be visiting Eero Saarinen’s School of Music in Ann Harbor. Even though the building is interesting, it struck me as odd that no music could be heard in the passageways, not even in the common spaces. At about the same time I watched a documentary about the Music Conservatory in Santiago de Cuba, it was an old colonial house filled with people, joy and music. For this project, I wanted to push to the limits the possibility of acoustic excellence – and also the seclusion and soundproofing of every space, as well as convey the conviviality and extroversion particular to certain musical practices.

Article source: Fabio Capanni Workshop

The extension of the primary and secondary school in San Piero a Sieve is located very close to the city of Florence.

The building consists of 630 square meters of new surfaces that will host the laboratories, the dean’s office, the offices for the scholastic staff, and an auditorium that works as an all-purpose space. Rooms and the gym will still be in the old buildings, built during the Sixties, and the new construction had also to connect to them.

EXTENSION AND MODERNIZATION OF THE GERMAN SCHOOL OF LISBON. 2003 – INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION WITH PRE-SELECTION – 1st prize

When the German School of Lisbon was first built in 1961, architectural practice in Portugal was divided into Estado Novo architecture and a growing resistance to it, resulting from the 1st National Congress of Architecture in 1948, the creation of the Modern Architects Organization that same year, and the publication of the Popular Architecture Survey that took place between 1955 and 1961.

Vittra Telefonplan in Stockholm, Sweden by Rosan Bosch

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Rosan Bosch

How do you create a school without any walls? In the 30 schools of the Swedish free school organisation Vittra there are no classes or classrooms – instead, the students are taught in groups according to level based on the school’s pedagogical principles of ’the wateringhole’, ’the show-off’, ’the cave’, ’the campfire’ and ’the laboratory’ – didactic approaches that create different types of learning and teaching situations. In Vittra, they do not believe in regular classes and the school organisation’s vision is to create an everyday for the individual students where individual development, a living cultural work and challenging learning environments are most important.
