Liceo Franco Costarricense

2003 - Public, Masterplanning

Education is being transformed; the learning process has changed its center of interest of the interchange of signals between man and the environment (stimuli - response), towards the study of the internal dynamic representations (mental) of the variation of the information. Today schools require not only to transmit knowledge or to develop habits or intellectual abilities, but also to develop all the integral potentialities of each person. The learning is not carried out only in the classroom; the student needs to assimilate the information that has learned and to fit this to its own perspective and to the time that faces to the community (the school) reaching therefore the success of the transmission. The “Liceo Franco Costarricense” School convoked us with the main purpose of solving this necessity to them, the informal learning outside the classroom. They wanted to have spaces that contributed with the encounter, the getting together, the reflection and the recreation. They wanted the spaces to identify the students with its institution. We had to take advantage of an existing infrastructure with little architectonic value and serious structural problems.
