Secondary school complex - Martigny
The building is designed to fully meet the functional program and to reach optimal performance, in terms of lighting, comfort and ventilation for classrooms and other areas. At the same time there are a variety of not specialized spaces intended to encourage meetings and exchanges between students of different classes and between students and teachers. We are convinced that training and knowledge transfer takes place largely through daily meetings in informal situations. Schools can accommodate and mediate between different approaches to knowledge and socialization. With this concept in mind, the whole building is designed as a series of environments, ranging from spaces dedicated to learning in the traditional sense, passing through more open areas where to meet and discuss, to the different types of open spaces where users can meet together and, finally, meet the city.
