A new High School focusing on the teaching of Andalusian and Moroccan music, responding to a unique programme based on a standard Ministry of Education programme. The lot assigned for the project is adjacent to the municipal conservatory, for a symbiotic and collaborative interactions between these two complimentary institutes.
Inspired by the both middle-eastern, Mediterranean city of Akko (Acre) and the Andalusian traditional court houses, our project entry suggests a scheme built clusters gathered around an array of internal courtyards, interconnected by a network of covered pathways.
The scheme is an open-end structural layout, to which the specific spatial manifestation responds.
