The educational cluster is a project involving 15 maternal and elementary classes, a leisure center without any form of hosting, and a "Maison des Arts".
All these spaces are gathered under 3 concrete archetypes of matrixes. They are folded and wrinkled as is required for this program. These scenarios are all grouped around a central square, where parents and users are welcomed. This brightens up the public space and is extended by an ecologically sheltered yard (through photovoltaic panels) that connect to the already existing courtyard.
The composition of these three buildings send us back to an almost traditional set-up of well known agricultural-centric and bourgeois buildings. The courtyard is reduced to the very basics of its conceptions within this particular program.
The scale is closer to the patio which generates more security to the child's daily environment which is an essential and necessary aspect of education.
The set of these bodies and landscaped spaces take root in the leveling ground with a brand new topography.
To best allow the meeting of these slopes and connections due to the constraints of the program, we suggested to organize backings for the closeness and proximities between the buildings, so that the established and revitalized spaces of this new arrangements are more clearly defined and prioritized.
The aim of this educational and cultural pillar represents an ease of access for all within the establishment that first connects knowledge to brand new minds, and connects and exposes various different cultures to each other.
In the end, it joins the two differing territories, a bridge, between knowledge and hobby.
