This 17,280 m2 building is a three-storey secondary school organized along a central interior street that links all the main public spaces. Masonry walls on the interior are used to absorb heat during the day and re-radiate this embodied heat at night. The building includes a full service commercial kitchen for culinary classes, gymnasiums, and a multipurpose 500 seat auditorium with lighting and acoustics effects. It was constructed with slot and smooth faced blocks configured in a series of curved vertical walls to deflect sound evenly throughout the audience.
