GD Goenka in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Article source: Epistle Communications

Educational Institutions across the globe are designed to facilitate the engagement of the young minds by creating interactive environments that are a blend of study, activity and play areas. In alignment with the same ethos, the GD Goenka group’s philosophy is to reinvent the school experience by creating the best physical infrastructure as per global standards, coupled with high quality, well-paidand motivated faculty. A simple and concise design brief was determined- to have class rooms that are equipped with the neoteric style of teaching and content. Unlike the use of traditional systems such as blackboards etc., novel educations tools take precedent in the contemporary education system; multimedia tools such as projectors, and adequate storage space for children to stack their bags, books, classrooms that are highly flexible to support a variety of formal and informal teaching methods etc. The design of the institutional development of a primary school (from kindergarten to class 5) enables these requirements while aiming to provide flexibility of spaces by making the building form itself as a part of the learning experience.

Article source: WRNS Studio

Last month, Sonoma Academy, an independent college prep high school located in Sonoma County, broke ground on a 22,000-square-foot expansion project, designed by San Francisco-based architecture and planning firm WRNS Studio. Situated on a 34-acre campus nestled at the base of Taylor Mountain, this marks the first phase of a two-phase campus-wide transformation. Known as the Grange & Studios, the two-level educational facility will add key academic, social and cultural spaces that will support the overall mission of the school. In less than 14 months, the project went from design phase to beginning construction.

De Opmaat extended school in Arnhem, The Netherlands by AHH

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: AHH 

De Opmaat, an extended school located where a meadow landscape meets the outskirts of Arnhem, houses a primary school, a nursery, a playgroup and a gym. The building has sloping roofs, staggered in relation to one another, with stairways, tribune steps, rooflights and roof vegetation. The form fits in with the surrounding area. Thanks to the green on the roofs, the view of the landscape from the houses on the other side remains intact. The glazed frontage on the north side refers to the nearby glasshouses.

Article source: Picharchitects

It is the extension of the Teresianas School of the c/ Ganduxer.

Because of its heritage value, the passage of time and the various education reforms, the school has been left without enough classroom space and recreational covered areas.

The new extension re-locates all grades and provides the school with new covered sports space with the necessary infrastructure to provide a service to the school and extracurricular activities.

Lilla Alby school in Sundbyberg, Sweden by Marge Arkitekter

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Marge Arkitekter

As an addition to an existing school built in 1968 this extension has been designed to accommodate 180 students in elementary and middle school in addition to the previous 240 and provide new classrooms, staff areas, a cafeteria and a library. An important task in the layout of the whole school complex was to release as much space as possible for play and green areas in the school yard. In order to do so, the extension is divided into a slender five story brick building with a tight footprint aligned with the street, and another lighter volume that links the old and the new school building together.

Hangzhou No.2 School of Future Sci-Tech City in China by LYCS Architecture

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: LYCS Architecture

Traditional primary and secondary school planning in modern Chinese cities usually provides students and children with an adult-scale campus environment at an excessively early stage. Such environment gives no help to them in coping with high educational and social pressure. Facing these phenomenon, it is the architects’ responsibility to subversively break these conventions in school planning and offer children with space of their own scale and age in which they will enjoy living and studying.
