SA, Jauri dos Santos  and  WERLE, Flávia Obino Corrêa. New pedagogy and the modernization of school architecture in Rio Grande do Sul (1937-1945): G.E. Silveira Martins in Bagé/RS. Cad. Hist. Educ. [online]. 2022, vol.21, e129.  Epub Sep 13, 2022. ISSN 1982-7806.

The present text is an approach to the modernization of the public school network in Rio Grande do Sul from the perspective of architecture, based on two axes: historical analysis and analysis of form and space. The first explores the subject based on reforms in education and the centralizing demands of the Vargas Era, examining school architecture in the light of the principles of the Escola Nova. The second brings to the agenda the perspective of graphic analysis and explores the building through interpretive diagrams. Systematized based on the project of Grupo Escolar Silveira Martins, in Bagé/RS, they include items such as: perimeter, accesses, circulation, sectorization and composition. The data show that the pedagogical modernization that took place in the large centers was felt in Rio Grande do Sul in a period that represented the implementation of expansion policies. The set of criteria allowed the identification of some design strategies, such as: architectural landmark, use of geometric shapes and approximation to the principles of modern architecture.
