ST. BENNO-GYMNASIUM

The Bishopric of Dresden-Meissen successfully found a centrally located site in Dresden, the ownership of which—unusual for former East Germany in the early 1990s—had been clarified. However, various constraints made the site initially appear to be wholly ill suited for a school. The building ultimately created for the St. Benno secondary school traces the longer roadside axis of the narrow site, yet an extensive, blue painted facade shields classrooms from traffic noise and visually impacts.
