The overall restructuring of Albert Einstein High School, ends with the completion of the last building renovation developed by the architect agency NBJ (Elodie Nourrigat / Jacques Brion / Romain Jamot) associated with François Privat architects.
The High School is a vast building of the 60’s. Built following a strict and repetitive pattern, it is composed of large linear buildings from 60 to 80 m length and large metallic workshops surrounded by large dilated and unattractive space. Site’s analysis shows several functional gaps. It is important to change establishment’s image by the way of idea and contemporary vision. The objective was to think a new spatial organization of the site in order to provide at students, teachers and the administration staff, a workspace and a real place of life appropriable by all. A restructuring strategy was established in three main points:
• Reconquest’s strategy
• “Find place’s scale”,
• A real landscape project to join over time
