modular montessori school

The 6-week long abroad project tasked students with the design of a Montessori elementary school, seeking to connect two economically and socially disparate neighborhoods in Florence through education. Sited adjacent to Ponte Amerigo Vespucci spanning the Arno River, urban datums and axes served as a means to ground my project in the city and dynamically aggregate individual classrooms into a school.
