Article source: Burton Hamfelt Architectuur Stedebouw Prototypes

The youth of Amsterdam are getting smarter and the growing waiting list for highly gifted students has generated the immediate need for a new temporary high school. The commission was to provide an architectural modular design and building system strategy for a temporary school building in the prominent location in the Overhoeks area in Amsterdam North. The temporary building was part of the school’s first step towards an expansion plan from 75 students to approximately 650 over a 5-year time span.

School extension in Antwerp, Belgium by Areal architecten

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Article source: Areal architecten 

Like the existing school (a modernist volume from the 50’s) embraces the main playground, the extension is positioned in a way that areas of security arise in its inner corners. The new volume integrates the pragmatic logic of the school campus, but not without creating some witty and special interventions adding functional value.

The Porter School of Environmental Studies in Tel Aviv, Israel by AXELROD GROBMAN ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013


The PSES building was designed as a “green building” with a synergetic perspective integrating the three elements of sustainability – environment, society and economy – into architecture. As an environmental, ecological structure, the building design utilized environmental parameters (such as solar radiation, wind, acoustics and more) in determining the form that the building would take and its position on the site. Unlike the traditional approach that examine the building’s performance “after the fact”, the design method employed in the initial stages of the design used performance simulation results to generate the actual form of the building.

New Public School for Primary Education “Ave Maria-Patxi Larrainzar” in PAMPLONA, Spain by Taller Básico de Arquitectura

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Article source: Taller Básico de Arquitectura

Project Description

The current educational center and its most recent expansion seem to announce a first solution for a new expansion. A U-shaped volume – a scheme justified in finding the best light for teaching – attached symmetrically to the last building, could solve the need for a playground that the program also required. This accepted U-shaped piece opts, however, for going against such an announcement, turning to stand facing El Salvador Church, one of the most urban buildings of the place.

Montbou public school in Santa Margarida de Montbui, Barcelona, Spain by David Closes Arquitecte

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: David Closes Arquitecte


The school, with a planned gross floor area of about 700 m2, had to be placed on a very small site, of just 630 m2, situated beyond on an existing sports court that was intended as the school’s playground. The surroundings were formed by a football ground to the west and, to the east, by a sector of single-family dwellings separated from the school plot by an alleyway of just three meters wide.
