Thesis use principles of play to reconstruct school building realized in the second half of the 20th Century. More broadly it deals with current state and conditions for reconstruction of modernist school buildings in Slovakia. According to Huizinga, play as such is older than culture and was a factor that stimulated the creation of culture and assumed the formation of human society. Free play is an instinct, a fundamental right, inherent in children, and a developed mechanism for acquiring skills and promoting learning. In the early 20th century, in a context marked by the horrors of war and the experience of the wild industrialization of the 19th century, society began to focus on the rights and education of children. This change in approach to childhood and children in general has been transcribed into theoretical and practical forms of architecture, from the scale of urbanism to the scale of an element of public space or domestic space. The concept of play began to penetrate into forms of education. In connection with urban transformation and housing construction playground have been created, which function should be the one of an institutionalized space education, but also of security or control. The same principles of control were also included in the architecture of other institutions such as schools. Project understands reconstruction of the school building not only as its annex or aesthetization but rather as reconfiguration and reinterpretation of its former principles.

The design theme is not just the archive as a repository of past, but primarily center of architecture as a platform for sharing ideas and shifting boarders in architecture. This makes an institution with overlapping contradictory programs at different levels. It is both closed and open. These two counterparts are solved in spatial and material „spiral“. On the one hand, there is the notion of absolute closeness that of archive, on the other there is also the idea of the maximum openness of public space. Closeness and openness are transcribed in mass, materiality as well as programmatic solutions of space. The aim is to modulate the degree of social interaction in each of the spaces according to its function.
