And so they called it a school..

The school originated in the moment when a man who didn’t know he was a teacher sat down beneath a tree to discuss his insights with other men who were unaware that they were pupils. The pupils learnt, and wanted to be like their master. They wanted to educate their children too. For this purpose they created a suitable space, and the first school appeared. This was an inevitability, since it was the consequence of human aspirations. The architect creates a space and gives it form after having understood how it ought to be in order to function properly.
