The topography of the site and the large area of the buildings have been decisive in this proposal. Three rectangular pieces, are located around a courtyard.
The reference level coincides with an ancient walkway that crosses the site. From this height, the different volumes are integrated with the land in its original condition, with small slopes and platforms to integrate the buildings to the topography.
The three pieces contain specific programs. They are bound together through a T-shaped porch with unequal arms and an agora located between the two classroom buildings.
