Critical pedagogy is an education model that will not serve the oppressor, but it will help the oppressed to reach the critical consciousness so that they can realize the world that is around them and be able to change it. This way, the oppressed will be able to fight for their needs. The existing typology of the school buildings serves an authoritarian model of the educational process. In this project a new model of school buildings typology is being researched. A school of critical pedagogy will have a direct connection with the city, its inhabitants and the public space. It will be a place of gathering and a pillar in the everyday life of the inhabitants: from the education of children and adults, the upbringing of children and the collective processes of the inhabitants, to the entertainment and cultural uplift of the area. The characteristics of space will favor dialogue, collaboration, collectivity, non-hierarchical relationship of all its users and freedom in expression. This project is located in the area of Akadimia Platonos in Athens, where there is a continuing conflict of interest between residents and investment capital, which aims to upgrade the area for higher social classes who do not live there though. The school of critical pedagogy in Akadimia Platonos aims to upgrade it in the light of the needs of the lower social classes that inhabit it and motivate them to connect with public space, their neighborhoods and to solve collectively the small and big problems they face.
