Their first campus, rolling out their unique funding model, is Calling Academy Stellenbosch, which is located on a bucolic plot bordering the Polkadraai Road between Stellenbosch and Kuilsriver. The site was identified and set aside by the previous generation of surrounding landowners to serve the local farming community and consisted originally of six existing classrooms, a reception, and a sports field.

The project was undertaken as a collaboration between Kosloff Architecture, artist Callum Morton and Monash Art Projects (MAP) and Rush Wright Associates Pty Ltd. Collectively, the focus was to deliver a building that performed exceptionally well environmentally and to create an enduring outcome that contributed to the University’s Public Art Strategy.

New A.M Enriques Agnoletti High School of Sesto Fiorentino / Settanta7

“A contemporary school must be a privileged place for knowledge transmission, a civic center, and a point of reference for the community”.

But it can also be a challenge for the territory itself that must establish strong synergies between the institutions that govern it to improve the building, school/culture, and work of the area. Settanta7 has designed the new Scientific “Anna Maria Enriques Agnoletti” High School in Sesto Fiorentino with this aim: an attractive and welcoming architecture, whose transparency and sinuosity create a symbiotic relationship between the learning spaces and the new urbanization context.
