Baldiri school courtyard in Gaudí's Park Güell
by Aquidos Arquitectes

Oriol Marin

Baldiri Reixac School is located in the Park Güell, conceived by Antoni Gaudí in 1900, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984.

Gaudí’'s permanent research to merge work of art and nature in Park Güell is a starting point for this project’s formal language. This intervention explores natural earthy colours, organic and polygonal geometries, ruled and parabolic surfaces, wooden furniture, Mediterranean vegetation, and the interpretation of natural elements with artificial materials.

The first strategy is to consider the courtyard as part of the educational unit through a great variety of amenities and routes as well as specific learning areas.

This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
