In order to respond to the new challenges, the school must live with the flexibility. Under this assumption, we propose the creation of an orthogonal mesh whose size "pixel" was the generator of shapes that contain modular and flexible spaces. The mesh would work as a board game, where the units are distributed as the pieces in a game, thus allowing flexible and multifunctional spaces.
