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. Connected to these are ‘the clouds’ - two spaces of liberty and free expression. Here we positioned the art classes, the music room, the gymnasium and the library; all the places where the student will experiment using their own skills and expression.
