More than an isolated school, the aim is to develop an URBAN PROJECT that ENCOURAGES NEW SECTORIAL CENTRALITIES WITH THE EQUIPMENTS that are already being used by the school such as the library, the auditorium, the cafeteria, the support rooms for neighborhood activities As the Project will be winding and turning it will be opening to the city, leaving space for small squares and exterior parks for public usage, leaving behind the bars and walls that stereotyped education institutions as closed spaces. The conformation of small squares and green spaces with trees direct on the surrounding streets, accompanied by the auction modules, will redefine direct accesses. The borders of the institution produce the closings; the school will not have bars or walls.
