The typology of the new building references that of the 1960s building with its central distribution hall, yet radicalises it into a plan featuring three strata, the central layer serving both as distributive and group-work space. The transparency of the lightweight partitions allows this space to benefit from natural light. This typology inevitably exerts an impact on the pedagogical concept. The use of materials within the building is confined to the bare load-bearing concrete and to the aluminium combined with the coloured glass of the lightweight partitions, which are finished in various shades of green. The materiality of the exterior confirms the volumetric character - the mirror-finish stainless steel frames of the glazing and the bare aluminium cladding applied to the section cut away from the base quadrilateral. The fragmentation of the reflections created by the bevelling of the fa├žades generates a new context.
