Masterplan and programming

Context

The CERIA site is a remarkable modernist school campus which hosts nearly 5,000 students. ADT launched a mission to study the establishment of two new large general secondary schools on campus or in the immediate vicinity.

Mission

Campus-wide masterplan including urban, landscape and programmatic proposals (phase 1). Operational mission aimed at defining the detailed architectural programme for the school (phase 2).

Approach

Our approach consisted in carrying out a detailed diagnosis of the campus and its functioning on the basis of field work, workshops with stakeholders and plan analysis. The design of three scenarios was then based on a back-casting approach which gave a long-term development vision. 3 very concrete implantation options were developed for the school with a SWOT analysis allowing the contracting authority to choose a development option that meets its expectations. It was on the basis of the option chosen that the specifications for the school's design contest were launched.
