The project is an extension of the existing campus, envisaged to approach the principles of sustainability and ecology. The disposition of the volumes is optimised in order to guarantee the best thermal performance of all units. The exterior envelope features overhangs and sun shading structures for a better solar control, and therefore providing protection for the classrooms in the summertime. The use of a wooden structure and the employment of green materials define this design as one of the leading examples in Italian bioarchitecture.
