Text description provided by the architects. In an arid landscape and almost flat terrain in the municipality of San Juan de Urabá, this school was built to replace the previous buildings in very poor condition. Around a large playing area and the football field, the modular buildings form a polygonal perimeter, with corridors to the interior and silent facades to the exterior.

A reinforced concrete frame receives perforated concrete block walls and metal roof beams. All single storey classrooms have cross ventilation and take advantage of the distant landscape. From a distance, the building behaves like a unique mark in the landscape.
