DESCRIPTION: A very demanding program, in space and engineering. The school demands a new infrastructure: A double gym, new rooms for teachers, multi-functional rooms and a Kindergarten need to be settle in the new building, respecting the green areas and the views towards the existing building as well as towards the Aare river. The only possible answer is to built underground in order to reduce the footprint area of the building to its minimum, and being able to keep the existing areas as a playground and public park for the neighborhood.
