France’s École Jean-Moulin is not your average elementary school. The building, by Richard + Schoeller is organic in shape and topped with an extensive living roof. The architects were inspired by the fluidity of water while creating the school, which provides children with a stimulating, airy environment in which to grow and learn.
Located in Montargis, France, École Jean-Moulin was finished early this year. The school measures 30,000 square feet and consists of two juxtaposed volumes set beneath a luscious green roof. The iconic, curvaceous building has plenty of indoor and outdoor space for enjoying sunny days.
The building’s shape was inspired by waves and hills, and its interior spaces are fluid, airy and filled with natural light. Situated amidst the city’s many canals, this gorgeous new school adds a welcome landmark to the region. This green-roofed school is the perfect space to learn about Jean Moulin, the French martyr for freedom.
