La Fabbrica del Sapere. The school must be an attractive place for the children who frequent it, open towards the city and the neighborhood, a “knowledge factory” that doesn’t remain confined within the walls of a building. We have chosen to use simple and defined forms, like industrial settlements, which allow us to use simple construction systems. The district in which the new school will be built over the years has developed around the Acciaierie di Terni, a strongly connotative presence, with large closed parallelepipedal pavilions, developed in height (vertical mills) and in length. The proposed solution takes the geometric shape of the opificio, which is modified to create an open and transparent building that shows the life that takes place inside, making evident the design and construction choices adopted. The new school is a learning garden, an organic space to discover and grow, characterized by the technology-nature mix.
