High School in Šavnik

Best Architectural Project by a Student

About the project
This is a student project for a small capacity high school, that is located in Šavnik, a small town with a population of just a few thousand people, in the northern mountainous region of Montenegro.
This educational complex is in its form, a mix of brutalism and constructivism. Brutalism in its Imposing, cantilevered concrete classroom block and on the other side, a gymnasium, that is brutalistically rudimentary in its form. The deconstructivistic part comes in terms of the roof, which is made out of metal panes, that sculpts over the main building and devours the gymnasium.
It is nestled inbetween two grand mountains, on a highland. It is comprised of a teaching block with four classrooms, suspended in the air by three massive concrete walls, flanked with rows of floor to ceiling windows, the main part of the building, which is in part covered by the teaching block, and the gymnasium.
