A Primary School in Vienna
MetadataShow full item record
The primary school in the middle of Vienna was thought out of a wish to create a special environment for children and their fantasy. It proposes a learning environment, where children move between different spaces and courtyards purposefully and with autonomy. The essence of the school lies in the constant interaction with a landscape consisting out of different courtyards, that are multiplied through reflections in the low-iron reflective glass, which is the main construction material. Each classroom is created using 2 layers of glass, with a functional thermal buffer zone in between. In this school environment, the material (nature) and the immaterial (its reflection) blur into each other, forming the phenomenon of an endless landscape in the middle of the city.
