During the second week, the students were then divided into groups that had to fulfill a specific assignment - the renovation of the Peter Vileišia Gymnasium in Vilnius, a school from the Soviet era with a generous park and sports field. The goal was to update the original building and its surroundings, to create more space for relaxation and spending free time, but also to loosen the classically bound school structure of the building and reflect current teaching methods. Students asked the following questions:

“How can informal spaces in schools encourage more socializing and recreation?” “Can can the outdoor space and the local environment become part of the entire school program, both during and after classes?"

Tereza's team Pavlíčková and Tomáš Müllera focused on unused attic spaces, he also proposed modifications music education classrooms and other elements creating immersive and interactive experiences. An example of their intervention is a staircase, allowing children to play on the railing, or an outdoor cocoon open to the sky. "It is an object equipped with glass pipes that emit different tones based on the amount of water that rains into them," explains the co-author of the proposal, Tereza Pavlíčková. To work with water, the group was greatly inspired by the introductory lecture of the Dutch architect Rianne Makkink about the Water school project. designing schools.

The workshop was jointly organized by FA BUT, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University and Fachhochschule Dortmund. Pedagogically, the workshop was led by Liutauras Nekrošius, Edita Riaubiene and Kataryna Didenko (Vilnius TECH), Dolf Broekhuizen (Rotterdam), Christiane Fülscher and Diana Reichle (FH Dortmund) and Jaroslav Sedlak (VUT Brno). The workshop was implemented as part of the Erasmus+ BIP program.
