Referring to a quote in the article, " I hope the students will build experimental constructions in the gravel courtyard, a place where weathering elements could be studied in time."

I think this a good idea. But I was thinking if this concept could be developed further and applied to the whole building and landscape - an architecture school which is built unfinished in many respects (aesthetic, conceptual and construction). Probably, just provide a direction or a 'nudge', and let the students and faculty develop on those concepts and keep growing the architecture of the building over the years. Because I think that is what the role of architecture schools and teachers is - not to teach, but to stimulate and direct.
