School Community Dialog Köln
The school’s name ‘Dialog’ was intentionally chosen to encourage openness and communication within the school community. This was also emphasised in architecture, by the school building being reachable on all four sides reachable by both levels. The two main entrances lead to a street that connects all areas of use.
The school is composed of a gymnasium and secondary school. It was designed to create a simple and compact structure, that integrates the old building into the new urban design. Because of the clear layout and versatile orientation of the building, the school is created without a ‘back’. With its open façade design, at street level it shows the new buildings’ open character to the users.
