CEM School Kamanar

The CEM Kamanar project began in Barcelona in 2014, when David García and Aina Tugores, architects from the dawoffice studio, met with the authorities of Thionck Essyl and made the decision to build a new secondary school. The aim was to solve the overcrowding in the only secondary school existing in Thionck Essyl at that time.
