More campuses

All existing school buildings are renovated and the old monastery is given a new entrance. By extending a park axis through one of the old courtyards, it was possible meet the spatial requirements of large student crowds entering and exiting the narrow structure of the monastery. The remaining courtyards are covered and provide space for functions such as central meeting areas, a library and a restaurant. The old school buildings are decluttered and are given a more spacious and flexible layout, with good connections to the main axes of the campus.

"The courtyards of the old monastery are used to give this monument a careful imbedded new accessibility network"
