Aiming an expressive and seismically efficient structure, the pavilion was designed with a single type “V” column which gradually rotates and reverses, generating an apparently random sequence. The whole set of columns is contained between two analogous plans dilated from the ground, simulating that the building floats over the grass.

The basic program housed at the “Auditeria” gets divided into two independent and autonomous areas; the kitchen and the main room, allowing it to be used as an auditorium or a cafeteria. This separation signified the creation of a multipurpose large format space for the school.
