AR2012 – Thick Building


A architecture school is a very dynamic school, everything that happens in the real big

world also happens in the school. So you can see the school, as a micro city. Which

needs streets and squares, and room for the informal and the formal. Especially space

where everything can happen. Architecture changes by time, like the society

changes. For this reasons the school needs to be very flexible and so this became the

main keyword: flexibility.

Like in the architecture school in Nantes by Lacaton&Vassal. It should be an open and

flexible space. A school is an instrument for people. It has to be functional in different

situations, especially for the unforeseen. It has to make day-to-day work in the school

more pleasant.
