The concept of the cultural – educational complex in Kajzerica has been deducted from a contextual inspiration: by shifting the direction of the complex volume from the street of the old Kajzerica we get a public area and an extension of the urban space under a green shelter. The lifted classroom volume slabs are outdoing the access to the school yard, opening transparency, lucidity, continuity and relations within the site, metaphorically substituting crowns and shadows of the trees, freeing the public space and rendering an artificial forest merged with the authentic green surface.
