The project proposal starts from an accurate site analysis, paying attention to the local topographic condition. The school program is assembled concentrating all public and collective activities on the lower levels, shaping a staple of public squares that connects 24/7 the lower street to the upper square. The social inclusion of the community in the educational program wills to reinforce the entrepreneurial vocation of the school, transforming all pedagogic programs into tourism and commercial opportunities to activate the local economy, while maximizing the social value of the building and the fluid system of public spaces.
