Excerpt from the jury report
With its open space at the cross-roads, the new school establishes a distinct address in its urban context and responds to the surrounding buildings with an adequately scaled building volume…The meandering sequence of school and sports hall defines clear open spaces for daily school use:The urban court in front has its counter part in a spacious wood-lined recreational and sports ground in the rear... The central hall with its adjacent separated auditorium and dining hall allows a variety of school-specific uses... In total, the design shows a unique attitude in urban and landscape design and provides a strong platform for the concept of the school.
