The school building at Piovene is caracterized by the disposition of the building volumes along two perpendicular axes. The main facade, overlooking the piazza, demonstrantes its urban importance by the ‘symbolic’ place which stands out in the centre of the long façade in a ‘habitual’ manner. Six columns form an external portico in front of the entrance hall with the lecture hall above, thus evoking images of a ‘pronaos’ and the concept of a building-monument. The full-heigth staircase windows create a pause at the junction between the central section and the two-storey blocks wich contain the classrooms and offices. Along the side elevation, perpendicular to the piazza, the gym maintains a spatial unity between the three ‘ pavilion blocks’. It is flanked by two single-storey ‘ linear blocks’ which house the refectory and the ‘pavilion blocks’ and the ‘linear blocks’, the architectural individuality of each ‘pavilion block’, and the volumetric differentiation of the ‘linear blocks’, allow the separate spatial entietes and the compositional principles to be easily recognized from the outside which relates to our everyday concept of the public building.
