The idea for this multi level public school was born through understanding the architectural potential of the natural site. This provoked a simultaneous redefinition of the term ground or in Greek topio as in topology at the macro and micro scale. At the micro scale the plan and section idea was to imbed in the edge of a cliff, all the children’s classrooms privileging them with broad uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean and a landscape of possibly their homes that precede these distant views.
