MULTIDISCIPLINARY HIGH SCHOOL
Lido di Venezia, VE, Italy
The starting point of the project was the design of a structure where the division between the private space and the connective space was evident. The idea took shape by designing closed volumes marked by projecting partitions that rise and stand out above the corridors, which, in contrast, are emptied to connect the space with the outside.
The changes in altitude are characterized by the presence of an embankment that encloses and elevates the building, showing a panoramic view of murazzi (historical Venice landmarks) and designing a private and protected internal courtyard. The presence of semi-public areas such as the auditorium, the gymnasium and the library creates new public attractions that can be used by the whole community. The school is no longer a closed place but a collective one. Education is released from the classroom and becomes fluid. Through the corridors, it is expressed by intercultural and intergenerational relationships and encounters.
