Our winning entry to the competition is was centered around continuing the existing school building in two forking wings that house open - yet cozy and comfortable - learning spaces. This results in a compact, but spacious places for learning without traditional classrooms. We believe this discourages hierarchy and helps overcome traditional learning difficulties. New learning spaces promote equality, possibilities for individual students and group work and break down traditional barriers between subjects and promote horizontal learning and inquisitiveness.
