Antigua Ecole

Antiqua Guatemala is an exemplar of urbanism made from two simple components - mostly one story buildings and a straightforward  grid (Law of the Indies variety). However, what makes it great urbanism is the implementation of many elements. The termination of the grid views by mountains gives it the comfort of an urban beanbag chair. The narrowness of the street and the relentless definition of the street wall allow no room for spacial missteps and the quality, color and detail of the architecture make it worth the expenditure of close inspection.
The école above speaks the universal language of fun.
