San Antonio Faculty Exterior Areas / ELE Arkitektura
Geometric landscapes. In accordance with Irigaray, “Need shouldn’t be merely a sexual or materialistic impulse, however a deep and complicated motivation that’s rooted in relationships with ourselves, with others, and with the world round us.” That is exactly what the intervention at San Antonio faculty is about. The work as a complete provides accountability to the consumer in order that, of their gathering, of their exercise, of their play, of their want, there’s house for the need of others. The impact is a paradoxical technique by which particular person and summary house turns into helpful when shared, by which the cave is barely suggestive as a result of somebody is climbing the mountain.
The intervention contains the renovation of an exterior courtyard, an inside cloister, and the modernization of the earlier entrance facade to the college. By means of pure geometric types, the goal is to unify the three compositions.
The unique facade was the longitudinal succession of a number of buildings constructed in numerous intervals, with important variations in composition and peak. The intervention seeks to create a uniform and unitary composition of your complete entrance by way of liberation from all ornamentation. The perceptual visible dialogue between the road and inside house seeks to blur the bounds of the work by connecting it with its environment. The intervention provides the entire a recognizable and modern picture.
The out of doors play space seeks to emphasise the permeability discovered within the facade. That is achieved by way of an appreciative visible reference to the outside, utilizing a steel mesh construction to form your complete composition of the place.
On one hand, and utilizing the steel mesh as a assist, a collection of geometric shapes, tailored to the dimensions of the customers and geometrically recognizable, are organized orthogonally the place a number of video games and circuits appear to emerge from them. This aspect manages to reprogram a blind partition wall about 80 meters lengthy that separates the neighboring property from the college.
Alternatively, on account of this steel enclosure and as we transfer in direction of the tip of the courtyard, we enter a collection of platforms. These wood helps goal to evoke a geometrization of nature, representing totally different well-known landscapes and adapting to their use on a scale.
Within the cloister, a semi-closed house is created that expands the doubtless usable lined space all year long. An virtually ethereal ETFE cowl is proposed, permitting for max use of pure mild. Following the identical geometric sample as in the remainder of the intervention, a brand new round geometry is overlaid on the oblong house of the unique cloister, successfully doubling the out there lined house.
