The designed faculty building is a vision of “free space” – a meeting place for students and teachers. This idea is expressed in the design through the load-bearing three-dimensional grid comprising pillars and beams. The grid is a structural platform that allows adding or removing individual operations as needed. We were inspired by large-scale industrial workshops (studios) where smaller storeys (offices) can be placed as needed. The school’s premises are interconnected visually and physically across storeys and within the layout – the interconnection ensures contact between teachers and students. Spaces open into inner courtyards can be enclosed with large louver walls. External fixed blinds prevent rooms from overheating.
