DF French School

04/15/2021

In an educational building.

Chosen in an international Brazil-France competition, the project hosts the French School located in Brasília, Brazil’s capital city. The desing integrates harmoniously with the surroundings, as it respects the mold defined by the slope of Brasília’s urban design. The building presents a modular rhythm with several voids that allow the user to constantly observe the external landscapes, contemplating green spaces and sunlight. Biophilia, highlighted in the several green roofs dressing the building rooftops, increases motivation, improves users’ mood and performance and does not limit learning to the classroom alone.
