Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

We were asked to design all kind of classrooms -from seminars to auditoriums- in a very dense context. The only way out was to go high. Given that massive student occupancy in higher floors has always been hard to solve, we decided to bring the courtyard closer to each upper floor:  This building is a vertical cloister.
