Escola Eleva Barra da Tijuca is the result of Architect Miguel Pinto Guimarães’ work. It prioritizes environments that stimulate creativity and the pleasure of learning, following global trends in education.

The architectonic ensemble also incorporates elements from local nature–a tribute to Frans Krajcberg and Fernando Chacel, both national references in defense of ecology and whose work uses natural Brazilian landscapes as inspiration.

Every space encourages integration, and open common areas are valued.

The area is 16 thousand m² big, and 10 thousand m² of it is open areas. Areas dedicated to sports are composed of three sports courts and one society field, tracks, a covered 640 m² gym and bleachers.

Among the internal learning spaces, there are two Makerspaces with MediaLabs, two libraries, and one auditorium. Besides that, the Barra Campus has an exclusive area for Kindergarten, with over 800 m² of playgrounds, classrooms with balconies, Mini Makerspace, music and drama rooms.

Architecture focused on interaction
We believe the learning process occurs at the confluence of three factors: the teacher, the group the student is in, and the environment where it all happens. For that reason, Escola Eleva Barra’s entire structure was designed to be a key factor in the development of the global citizen. It has spaces that encourage learning in a positive way with broad windows, contact with nature, natural lighting and ventilation.

Our children need space to grow, and Escola Eleva provides the ideal one so they can grow to learn in a collaborative way–that is why all environments integrate and stimulate creativity.
