The building can be explained by two architectural elements: a wall of sinuous containment and a constructed wings that rest on the first one. The wall is the instrument to give the back to an urbanized bland environment with the intention that the rest of the building, resting on it, develop towards the good orientation and the surrounding green spaces. The above mentioned wall will be also “beginning and end” in the functioning, it arranges and directs the traffics and turns into the visual reference of the building.
Because of its use and emplacement, we have wanted to construct a building closed in itself, but with inner transparencies that allow to visualize between them the areas of the centre and the courts of game. The above mentioned are the only ones that we put in relation with the exterior through a hollow torn of 1 meter of height, which will allow the children to extend visually their zone of games with the outer green space.
