Clermont-Ferrand School of architecture in France by du Besset-Lyon architectes urbanistes

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

Article source: AHA 

The task was to transform a sanatorium, built in 1930’s, into a School of Architecture. The Sanatorium is a perfect example of functional architecture, and it has to change radically its function. In order to preserve the rational spirit of the existing building and to create a model of a coherent architecture for the future students, our project becomes a pure reconversion: we restated the main architectural concept of the Sanatorium.

Reading Room of Shenwan Teaching School at Enshi City in Hubei Province, China by SLOW Architects

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: SLOW Architects

This teaching school locates in the mountain area of Enshi City, Hubei province and at the intersection of three counties. The students in this area live far away from any of the central school of the three counties, so the teaching school is reserved because of the actual need. But it could not get more financial support to improve its hardward.

Nursery School in Haro, SPAIN by taller básico de arquitectura

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Article source: taller básico de arquitectura

Geography as origin

The preschool is built on the urban limit of Haro. A place without buildings, marked with road lines, announces its immediate apparition. The strong slope delineates and discovers for us the possibility of an architecture of a geographic origin.

Bronze tightrope walker… welcomes Park Extension schoolchildren in Montréal, Canada by NFOE etassociésarchitectes

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Montreal grew rapidly during the first half of the 20th century and keeping pace was the construction of neighbourhood schools, often designed by well-known architects of the time. A decade ago, a major revamping program was launched by the Montreal School Board (CSDM) to deal with the serious need of upgrading their building stock. One of the first schools targeted for upgrade and expansion was Barclay School, designed in 1930 by Gordon and Thompson.

Back of the Yards High School in Chicago, Illinois by STL Architects

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: STL Architects 

This urban high school is organized into three thematic components: body, mind and spirit, that relate to the various programs and activities within the school that compose the curriculum. The site is zoned according to these thematic areas and bars are created, housing the athletics (body), the academy classrooms and teaching spaces (mind), and the library, arts and music (spirit). The bars slide against each other to create outdoor spaces on the site, programmed for specific activities that work in conjunction with the buildings—entry courtyard, athletics fields, and reading garden. The three volumes (body, mind, and spirit) that comprise the school are created by one continuous wall that snakes back and forth through the site.

Sant Miquel Special Education School in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Spain by Pepe Gascón Arquitectura

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Article source: Pepe Gascón Arquitectura

Apart from its mere built container, a school is nothing more than a place where teaching and learning take place. This project, therefore, reflects the desire to interact with the city, revealing the flows and activities that occur within the immediate environment of the site.

Nursery School in Zarautz, Spain by Ignacio Quemada Architects

The parcel forms a right-angled triangle. As if it were a child’s game, its design plays with this shape, on top of the leg that adjoins an eight-storey block (yet unbuilt), the “servant spaces” are concentrated along an elongated section.

Lamoricière school in Paris, France by archi5

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: archi5

The planning and design of this refurbishment and extension project is the result of a very careful analysis of the context. The school faced several problems caused by the overlapping uses of space by several programmes, leading to confusion in traffic flow and hindered visibility of the nursery school and its access from Carnot Boulevard.
