The school is an influential zone in which creativity and activity is promoted throughout the site whilst also heavily integrating craftmanship through workshops that are the life of the site and is the core to what the school is built around. There is a focus on passive creativity on the site with students’ term pavilion creations being easily accessed, viewed and explored throughout the whole year. The building also becomes an educator through the exposed interior and exterior frame, allowing students to understand construction whilst showing the general public just how resourceful sustainable materials such as wood can be The arched pavilion runs throughout my sites and connects spaces. Running through both internal and external spaces the pavilion emphasis everything my civic building stands for – A majestic piece of timber craftmanship that promotes activity and creativity whilst also improving wellbeingthrough incorporating multiple factors that improve it, such as splendid views, sound acoustics and a beacon of connectivity. With a heavy emphasis on wellbeing this site also aims to inspire the future generations. As users move throughout the site they’re exposed to different views, creations and atmospheres which combine to form a holistic design that reclaims connectivity.
