NURSERY SCHOOL SANDRIGO

L’asilo color pastello

Nella campagna di Sandrigo la scuola materna è stata concepita come una riduzione del lessico palladiano ai giochi di solidi primari per i bambini. Ogni aula è una sorta di casetta elementare, ciascuna dotata di un suo piccolo padiglione-veranda, aperto a mezzogiorno, e ha un colore diverso dall’altro: in questo modo i bambini si indentificano con esso.

Flavio Albanese
founder & partner

Flavio Albanese (1951), is founder and president of Asastudio. A self-taught man whose training did not follow the more usual academic route, he began to show interest in shapes and design as a very young boy, and he gradually added many strings to his bow in all sectors of architecture and design. He has held courses at the École Polytechinique Fédérale in Lausanne and at the Art Institute in Chicago (1980), at Yale University (1983), at the University of Architecture in Delft (2005), at the University of Florida (2006), at the Fundacion Proa de Buenos Aires (2008) and frequently at the most important Italian universities. He has also held two workshops at the international summer school of the Architecture School in Venice in 2009 and 2010. He was a member of the Confindustria Vicenza committee from 1998 to 2001, the Domus Academy Scientific Committee (2004-2005) and the MIart Committee of Honour (2009 and 2010), director of the Officina del Porto di Palermo (2006-2008), vice president of the Andrea Palladio Architecture Firms International Centre (2011-2015) and president of the Fondazione Teatro Comunale Città di Vicenza (2010-2016). From 2007 to 2010 he was asked to head Domus, the prestigious international architecture, design and contemporary art magazine. Together with his brother France, he founded Asastudio in Vicenza in 1987, whose projects have appeared in the most important architecture and design magazines. The Neores project was selected for the Mies van der Rohe Foundation European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, and Asastudio took part in Venice's Architecture Biennial in 2004 and 2006. Flavio is an avid reader and bibliophile (his library, which is open to the rest of the firm, contains more than 15,000 volumes) and he is a connoisseur and collector of contemporary art.

La scuola materna statale di Sandrigo sorge con i suoi colori pastello e i suoi volumigiocosi fra i campi ancora verdi di una recente urbanizzazione. Oltre alle tre aule per la didattica la scuola opsit la mensa con relativa cucina, la direzione didatica, una sala per le riunioni degli organi collegiali e altri servizi.
Il meme architettonico della palladiana diventa una stilizzata e semplificata citazione postmoderna che si ripete su un portale laterale e lungo il colonnato di pilotis azzurro-pastello, Il corridoio di collegamento fra le aule è una pista da corsa dove i bambini possono correre e dar libero sfogo alle energie.
