Founded on an educational approach aiming to grant young people flexible and productive environment based on individual choices, the campus and each unique building serves to develop a free, analytic atmosphere, with a high degree of social competence. The spine and the veins perpendicular to it formed by volumes dedicated to main functions like classrooms and relatively the pattern born out of their positioning designs the secondary function areas - that are open, semi-open or closed such as patios- such as sports and culture zones and buildings or social facilities.
Classroom buildings, placed on the east-west axis, describe the "inner streets" perpendicular to the "main axis". Every two the building with 11 meters side facade, situated parallel and 10 meters from each other, prolongation of the space between two buildings form the inner streets and connect to the main backbone of the project at 90 degree, repeated in the same rhythm all over the site. This pattern form eight clearly defined internal street. In parallel with each twin classroom unit, 24 meters space left for green zones and common areas. Main function buildings determine the regularity yet buildings of secondary functions grant flexibility and diversity with their structural diversity as well. P
revailing attitude of the entire campus is flexibility; moreover, it is aimed to have a warm, friendly environment, far from harsh and boring school model ingrained in the memory of the previous generation. The project offers alternatives for free and unique choices for individuals to learn, to communicate and to express, above all, students to practice life. The fluency of the modular structure establishes the association of buildings and fosters smooth the relations of students and academics.
