The site has pre-existing buildings from the communist era, and sits within a densely grown - and long-time neglected - space. The park absorbs historical layers and conflictions and creates a welcoming internal shared space for the students. For the students we’ve created a concurrent system of contrast and exchange between spaces of control and spaces of liberty. Control spaces (classrooms and teacher’s offices) are located in the reinvigorated communist-era buildings - their repetitive and systemic structure lends itself wholly to this. The direct connection with the forest was ensured through two new buildings where we positioned the art classes, the music room, the gymnasium and the library; all the places where the student will experiment liberty using their own skills and expression.
