UMBRELLA - COOL SCHOOL

"An open umbrella is a beautiful enclosed sky.”

Xavier Forneret

School is the most important socialization environment for children; it is not only a place of education, but also a space of connections , multifunctional platform.

 

For younger, it is not only important to go to school for lessons, so we go to meet friends, have fun, learn the great values such as Love, Peace, freedom; we go to thrive, to blossom out.

“Child" feeds the desire to overcome, to break the ingenuity, but this is only possible in an appropriate setting. 

Well-being, more than a fact is a sensation which depends on the individual concerned. This can be created from the surrounding, from the school for children. To satisfy these needs we decide to produce a unique and responsive framework for sensations expressed by users of the future school. We must combine at the same time visual, recreation, education, and enjoyment in one design that responds to local climatic requirements and climate issues on a global scale.

The idea of a transparent umbrella-shaped structure comes from its first use: protection against rain, the weather. We must protect children while allowing them to observe nature, the landscape, the environment, while ensuring a comfortable during extreme climate. The exterior wooden frame makes the feel of a space that is both closed and open: it is like “you are locked out.”

Primary school is both an open building with transparent materials, but also structurally closed cause of a need for protection against the extreme conditions. The symbiosis between the natural environment and the users is integrated by the use of wood as a material that is attractive, sustainable and robust to ensure efficient operation of the facility of use.
