The Normal School of Piracicaba, whose premises was inaugurated in 1917, is a landmark within the historical, cultural and educational heritage of the city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Several events record its role in teachers’ training from the Republican standpoint. Current research analyzes the institution’s premises as the site of the production of history and memory, from its architectonic ideals, construction, forming elements and possible uses by agents. Narration endeavors to investigate the agents’ appropriation of school space-time as constituents of memory by Pierre Nora, cultural heritage by Néstor García Canclini and educational experience as a didactic and pedagogical value of school architecture by Antonio Viñao-Frago.
