Leppanen Anker Arquitectos was commissioned to reenvision various clusters of the K-12 campus of Colegio Alberto Einstein. After a preliminary analysis, a conclusion was made regarding the rigidity of the existing buildings in relation to the surrounding environments. The existing buildings and building organization limited the learning capacity to engage the visual surroundings in terms of light, wind, green space and the numerous textural experiences that are available in this campus setting.

The primary concept aimed to dissolve the rigidity by making the exterior and interior spatial experiences much more porous and to integrate both with the above-mentioned elements. The concept was demonstrated throughout the master plan, building organization, circulation and the design of the buildings themselves.
