Bir El Ameer Secondary School

The area that the site occupies is relatively small for an educational block, so in this case we decide to maximize the urban space and landscape by shifting up the built volume. This gesture creates a doubled outside area, not only for the students’ better appropriation but also as a central addition to the urban program of the neighbourhood, as after school hours the space can be used for various cultural activities. The courtyard during the morning provides a ‘nomadic’ space, an informal socializing space for the students’ wellbeing and informal education but can also function as an amphitheatre and auditorium interconnecting all the levels up. The school has axis towards all directions of the existing urban fabric, north, south, east+ west, therefore becomes the connecting element that brings together all the neighbourhood and surrounding blocks. The community in the afternoon can use the space for public activities and concerts.
