Everything looks better when you put it in a circle

‘Everything looks better when you put it in a circle.’ This was the main idea when designing the GO! elementary School Merlijn located in Tongeren. The fluid shape of the new building harmonises with the development of the school’s kids. The youngest start their academic career inside the round volume which serves as a nice and safe cocoon to play and grow up in. As they get older, they move into the straight shaped primary school building ready to face the rest of the world. Construction has begun and the building site already looks very promising indeed!
