The concept of the school complex is based essentially on the “naturalistic” interpretation of the place, as well as on its city-planning features. The three main sections of the complex – school, gym and public space – are positioned in such a way that they build a low hill following the profile of the ground. The use of dry-assembled technology (structure/envelope system) has contributed to reach the goal of the minimization of energy consumption in the life cycle of the complex, increasing the use of passive strategies.
