● An education campus as urban gate: the Kemnath project is a complex and hybrid scale work between urbanism, landscape and architecture, where a new school –Realschule- for 850 students is the masterpiece of a new urban development for the future north-west gate of the city, including sports facilities, a new residential district and the landscape integration of the water course Flötzbach. The proposal explores the role of an education campus organized along a natural infrastructure as an urban gate.
● A topography building as urban interface: the building of the school works with the topography to connect the two main structures that can be seen from the main road, Berndorfer Strasse, with an intermediate interface. Together they form a schoolyard oriented towards the river Flötzbach, which can develop into a coherent campus garden for the school and the neighbouring existing facilities. The classrooms in the three-storey school building are grouped around a central communication space that corresponds to an innovative pedagogical concept and desired teaching room principle. It remains economically compact and allows the distances to be kept short for the desired exchange between the hours.
