Smart School in Irkutsk, Russia

The vision for the Smart School project is to create a new type of school – a “School Park” – that unites architecture and landscape into a unique learning environment and gathering point for the local community. The complex is organised as a permeable ring of buildings, which contain the main functions and are grouped around a central outdoor space. Each building and function expands towards the centre in the form of directly related outdoor area and together these areas form a diverse arena for experiential learning and pedagogical synergies. 

The Smart School educational complex will have room for 1.040 students, aged from 3 to 18 years, a staff of over 400, divided into several professional groups, and outside users. The complex consists of a pre-school, junior school and high school as well as cultural, leisure and health centres, which are accessible to the public. A minimum of 15% of the student body is reserved for orphans and children with limited physical capabilities.

The design proposed by Danish architecture and design practice CEBRA was selected in a prestigious architectural design competition among five other proposals from architects including MVRDV, Sou Fujimoto, WORKac, Architects Rudanko+Kankkunen/Studio Puisto and MKPL Architects.
