Paspel School

Paspel School
Secondary School
1996-1998 Switzerland

Sutcanova 10,7417
Paspels, Switzerland

Architect: Valerio Olgiati


Paspels school is a reinforced concrete monolith. The architect did not use right angles for the outside, so although at first glance the exterior geometry seems simple, closer study reveals a chain-like reaction of slight distortions that shroud the building in an air of strangeness. Inside, however each classroom on the first and second floors has two right-angled sides that make up the walls of cruciform access corridors. In sum, the school can be interpreted as an exercise in the phenomenology of perception.
