Learning is putting the five senses to catch new knowledge. Our way of teaching through architecture is by creating environments that motivate and excite its users.
We believe in the power that color has on us, at psychological and therapeutic levels.
This project was a perfect occasion to go deeper into recognized studies of color theory and integrate this concepts into architecture.
We can say that this project solves a complex program, it adapts to different uses providing each one with an ideal space and establishes a dialogue with its surroundings. However, what makes it really “special”, is how it harnesses the sensory powers of architecture.

Apparently we had reached a great height in the atmosphere, for the sky was a dead black, and the stars had ceased to twinkle. By the same illusion which lifts the horizon of the sea to the level of the spectator on a hillside.
