The project starts from the park as a core element by creating a large lawn as centrality. This immense and multifunctional green carpet with free access creates a relation between the buildings and their periphery. The connections between the different built cores are primarily realised by three central circulation systems: the quay for the educational part, the north-south lane between the large lawn and the sport fields, and the eastwest lane that connects the educational core, administrative core and restaurant. Traversing the school site becomes a real promenade alternating zones with shadow and light, in proximity to the water, in the forest, in the fields, or in a meticulously designed or colored garden.
