How does the Mexican School of Montessori

The main problem faced by the architects of the two studios - EPArquitectos and Estudio Macías Peredo - the design of the Montessori school building in Mazatlán, Mexico - hot and humid climate and high salt content. In addition, the construction had to meet the specific requirements of the training environment, put forward by the Montessori method.

Montessori system differs from conventional models of education, so this school classes should be a dynamic space where children can experiment and awaken your senses. Class Form should encourage curiosity and activity, so the desired space should be centrifugal, rather than linear. That is why the architects erected a veritable playground of nineteen hexagonal volumes grouped around several patios. Each class is regarded as a living cell, it united with other like a one-piece body. A covered walkway connecting the individual volumes, serves the purpose of thermal insulation and creates a half-open space for playing children's activity.

Different sizes and an unusual triangular shaped openings not only reflect an unusual approach to the idea of ​​a window, encouraging creative thinking youngest users of the space, but also take into account the different age - from one month to twelve years.
