Create identity.

 

 

Industrial buildings, such as the Andritz AG, mixed with small housing structures make an urban sprawl out of this area in Andritz. Seeking some new identification of the Andritz people makes a new spot necessary. We decided to make the new school being this spot. A so-called Grätzl is an Austrian word for a special form of community, that is more situated in Vienna, but therefor a more urban than a rural word. So the new Grätzl school should mark a spot of new urban development and identification of this very outer region of the city of Graz.

Suburban scale as a chance.

 

 

Contemporary schools are cluster schools. This leads to a flat but big scaled structure. We want to take the small scales structures of the surroundings as a chance for our project and try to merge the cluster structures with the structure of the tiny housing nearby. This leads to an outstanding structure in school building typology.
