Contrary to all expectations the wooden structure isn´t computer generated but a result of experiments with spatial models.

By stacking their materials in a certain way the designers discovered a method that allowed the slats to move slowly while the construction as a whole still remains solid. Thus, the wooden skeletons look like organic, almost living elements, offering a warm contrast to the school building.
