An innovative school complex with fluid spaces and open to the city in the Symbiosis district in Porta Romana.
Schematic design, final design, construction design, artistic direction, landscape design, interior design - 2018 / ongoing
The school is part of the Symbiosis masterplan, the new Business District of Covivio which, at south of the Prada Foundation, already houses the headquarters of large international companies.
An iconic volume, generated by the juxtaposition of two blades with different profiles and marked by verticality, opens the interiors to the surrounding context, with ample terraces that mark the perspective articulation. Large glass surfaces and metals with refined finishing allow the facades to interact with the surrounding environment, reacting in a changing way.
The 3 hosted school cycles (elementary, middle school, high school) are organized from bottom to top on different levels, while on the ground floor the collective activities (canteen, gym, swimming pool and auditorium) are open to the city and to the large outdoor playground, equipped for open air activities.
