Our project, developed by Stancanelli Russo Associati in collaboration with Modo Studio, CLA studio ass., engineer M.Pennisi, and geol. Salvatore Palillo, won the international design competition for the demolition and reconstruction of the “G.Verga” high school in Adrano. The design calls for the demolition of the existing building and the construction of a new school complex, which, in addition to guaranteeing the safety of all users, will be able to prove welcoming to the students, activating a relationship of trust with the school and the institutions it represents. In it, and in the social and cultural reality that it will be able to stimulate, the students should be able to identify themselves, developing a strong sense of belonging.
The work is designed to stimulate the meeting and exchange of ideas, including through open spaces within it, thus promoting a new system of relations between the school and the city and pursuing the primary objective of the project, namely the psychological and physical well-being of the students.
