The project comprises a complex of four cooperating schools with a total student population of 2000. The High School is based on a system of atria following a prominent axis that constitutes both a central passageway and an open-air space/garden. This system defines the boundaries of the private spaces of each separate school and their relationship to the larger public spaces of the general complex.
