de la Sagrada Familia, s/n
building ahead of its time
small building (200 m2) is one of GaudÝ's most radical and
modern works and, unfortunately, one of the least known. The
architect designed it as a provisional school, annex to the
temple of the Sagrada Familia.
a single nave -altaugh partioned into tree classrooms, whics
explains its plural name-, it is characterised by the undulation
of the cašades and the roof which GaudÝ archieved by applying
variables of ruled geometry. The use of the brick, a cheap
and malleable material, allowed a quick and resitant construction.
Le Corbusier expressed enthusiasm about its qualities on his
visit to Barcelona in 1928.
