Year:1978
The commission for designing David d’Angers High School enabled Friedman to verify his ideas for self-planning by a group of future users. In different stages and by a set of rules the users decided on the lay-out of the building that was to be executed in an industrial construction system. Defining and indicating their use of the building resulted in the diagrams for the two floors of the building. Friedman intended the process to be repeated whenever this was wished for.
The project was built in 1980.
