In the 60ies and the 70ies most schools were layout in a linear way, like repeated units on a string, without any center. In this new building form, the string is bend so that it surrounds an inner garden. The program, classrooms and shared spaces, are organized in a circular building, around an inner courtyard, that it shields from the rough Trondheim nature.
In this school we want to combine the free and flexible plan with the experience that the school has a strong identity. The center is reintoduced in order to create a cohesive school environment.
