Interpreting original redevelopment

Pablo Horváth as Architects

The canton grisons guideline was an extensive head technological redevelopment, that is to say the school buildings transformation from the sixties into the present, to keep the minergie standard in the future and to satisfy all the today’s instructions and norms.


As an unique example, the former teacher-training college presents itself as a built replacement of the post-war modernism in grisons. The choosen way we followed records the architectonical and three-dimensional qualities of the existing school building.


It was the aim to transport the concrete structures strong architectonical expression into the present and to satisfy the statically, building physically and operational requests with it. The most important starting point was dabei, to reach the material presences existence once more again.


The interpreting original redevelopment makes it possible to bring two contradictory requests together: to receive the constructions character and expression and to combine it with the claims of the technical requests.
