Description

The importance of education in a global economy is undisputed, and in the wake of international assessment studies schools and kindergartens have become the focus of considerable public interest. As a new generation of educational environments are designed and built, this Design Manual helps architects to grasp the underlying educational theories and how they can be realised in built form.

Over 80 international case studies covering all school types are examined and explained in the context of varying national and cultural education approaches. Among the key themes analysed are the impact of modern communication technology, acoustic and lighting design, sustainability, internal circulation and outdoor spaces, renovation and adaptation to changing requirements.

Available for the first time in paperback, the book features examples from internationally famous architects such as Foster and Partners, Behnisch and Partner, SOM, Herman Hertzberger and others. Its detailed, systematic presentation makes it essential for all involved in educational building design.
