Primary School & Multipurpose Hall, Canobbio, Switzerland
Competition. With Nicola Andreani
A T-shape existing primary school stands on its site dividing it in two. While on the southern side a garden exists by the adjacent street and the school itself, the north side remained undefined. The proposal positions two buildings on this side. One houses the additional classrooms that sit on top of the existing prefab structure, while the multipurpose hall takes over the opposite side, creating an urban void in between that acts as an organizer. The project focuses on the scale these buildings should acquire in order to enhance not only its immediate context but also to impact in a major area.
