The aim of this project is to generate an educational building where people will learn through a series of experiences. Understanding that one of the best ways of educating is through a method of learning by doing, a self-discovery of the individual.

Continuom also involves the notion of time. But time not understood in a chronological way, rather time as the dimension where experiences occur. Experiences as a result of the evolution of time and this experiences as part of an educational process.

To ensure an evolution and continous change of this experiences, the architecture itself should adapt to change. It cannot be a fixed architecture, it should be dynamic, nondeterministic, fluent. So the inhabitable spaces area going to change according to the individual desire to generate a catalog of spaces that will generate infinite experiences.

Continuom proposes a new architecture, a machine to generate spaces, experiences, feelings.
