UNDER FINAL DESIGN
"The project seeks the interaction with the natural environment, through a geographical approach that aims to overcome the separation between natural and artificial elements: it produce a new landscape that simultaneously aims to offer the best hospitality for educational activities and a rich opportunity of uses for free time. The building is distributed along the north-south direction, with a connective tissue to perform the individual sections, whose complex geometry does not compromise the functional articulation. This pattern also supports a continuous and complex relation between protected areas and open spaces around."
