Authors’ Comment

_a compact development that relates with the central plaza | YARD / HOF | EDUCATIONAL CLOUD a place for the pupils to emulate personal skills
_a daily spatial perception and image of a place that invites the desire to equal or outdo
_the environment for the pupils to develop: around a so called courtyard of clouds,a functional, fluid and logic structure, with optimized routes
_the buildings are gathered in a perfect square;the square symbolizes stability, community, integrity, direction, pragmatism and elemental
_the interior courtyard placed in the center is a mass connecting “central plaza” and brings intimacy in all events
_the exterior facade binds the buildings together around the plaza
_the entrance is emphasized by a higher facade(special totem) and a gap in the “rain” curtain which leads people in the plaza
_the exterior facade pins the new campus of the German School on the city map with a powerful statement_ the campus as a B(eautiful)RAIN: a colorful black-red-yellow huge flag with twisted perforated metal ribbons that embrace and sunshade the buildings with a landmark attribute
_the interior facade brings warmth through the wood panels
_the green fence of the campus is an abstract zigurat along the street as a horizontal natural sculpture
