Our proposal understands the VS (primary school) and NMS (middle school) as one’s first place of social integration for the Smart city youngest citizens. Its role within the social spectrum is key since these are the spaces where we learn to interact and collaborate. Our proposal aims to create a school where students can develop their individual personalities while increasing their ability of working in groups. In order to allow this variety of functions, we propose a building that aims to become a teacher itself by offering multiple arrangements and combinations. The circulation spaces are re-envisioned as potential learning and teaching spaces that enable the spatial connectivity between the program and the surrounding site.
