Ecole des Condamines

I don't know about you, but I would have loved to go to a primary school made of a juxtaposition of pyramids, especially with such a pretty umbrella shaped tree!

Je ne sais pas pour vous, mais j'aurais adoré aller dans une école primaire faite d'une juxtaposition de pyramides, surtout avec un arbre en ombrelle si élégant!

Well, I don't know. That certainly is unlike any elementary school I've ever seen. Probably would be an interesting experience to attend there as it appears those in charge are quite creative.

You make it look appealing with this beautiful photo.

Oh, there must be so much light in there and we all need light to grow, don't we?

I agree with Brattcat about the light. It must be wonderful with all that light, especially on dark wintry days.

Hmmm bet that tree is just nothing short of stunning in the summer!

Well, every institution who exalted the imagination of people, extra early the children, ia a win-win situation.

j'aime bien les écoles avec une architecture moderne. Mais j'aimerais pas retourner à l'école ;o))

Yes, cieldequimper, this is the BACK side of a shopping mall In Greensboro Daily Photo.

I love seeing pictures of schools and especially schools uniquely designed as is the one in the photo above!

This is very cool! I would have never guessed it is a school. Awsome tree!

Certainly beats the school I went to.

The tree breaks up the cold hard shapes of the building, well done:)

I would have been very happy to have gone to school here.

This really is an interesting school. The glass pyramids are similar to what I envisioned when I read a science fiction story in elementary school - "All in a Summer Day" by Ray Bradbury. A very sad story.

I'd like it, for sure!
