This project for the design of a primary school is located in one of the hills in Aiete Puyo-Lanberri in San Sebastian in a sloping plot oriented towards the South East. The project grows from a desire to adapt the required programmatic volume to the topograpy so that the design proposes to con- centrate the main volume to the North ’urban’ edge of the plot and adjust it to the topography as well as opening it up to the views towards the south > producing an educational topography.
The project proposes to open up the volume as a ‘fan’ of 3 branches, which follows the required programmatic diagram to incorporate 3 education- al levels. As a result, the project formalizes in 3 topographic levels that resolve 3 educational levels. In this diagram, each level will be able to enjoy it’s garden, views…Three educational levels, 3 topographic platforms, 3 gardens, 3 orientations, etc. The project proposes to extend the reading
of the 3 educational groups through the materialization of an architectonic variation, so that each student will enjoy a slight atmospheric change everytime they successfuly overcome a level.
