Public Integrated Education Center | CIEPs
The CIEP (Public Integrated Education Center) was a model for a public elementary school based on the school-park by Anísio Teixeira and conceived under the command of Leonel Brizola – what granted it the nickname “Brizolão”. In total, around 500 CIEPs were built.
The Centers have been implemented in disadvantaged areas of the state, with the purpose of offering full-time study programs for one thousand students each, as well as complementary activities such as sports, health care, food and cultural activities.
The standard design is a main building with three floors and 24 classrooms, an auditorium and special rooms. It is interconnected by a central ramp that leads to a covered playground on the ground floor, where the lunch room and the medical center are also located. Two other separate blocks are occupied by the library and the multi-purpose hall, a covered sports gym with stands. On top of the library a temporary residence for up to 12 children and a supervisor couple were also provided. In a compact model, the annexes are installed on top op the main volume, with the water tanks.
To facilitate and speed up construction, which lasted approximately six months, the elements, including the structure with round-corner openings, were prefabricated. On the facade, the closing is made by colored panels and aluminum frames with horizontal brise-soleil.
