This school represents a radical approach towards industrialized construction with the aim of minimizing the use of materials, layers and elements, obtaining nevertheless a maximization of their environmental and perceptual qualities. The building has been assembled using a very limited number of elements and with a negligible production of waste, in a very short time.
The building is proposed as a constructive and energetic experiment that generates its form and serves as a model for teaching spaces that goes beyond the European nZEB provisions and gets closer to the Passivhaus standard.
