New Classrooms for the School of Economics at Murcia University in Spain by Ecoproyecta + Ad-hoc msl

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Article source: Ecoproyecta + Ad-hoc msl

The design project for eight new classrooms for the School of Economics and Business at Murcia University, the result of collaboration between Ecoproyecta and Adhoc msl, has been defined from the beginning by sustainability criteria with respect to energy efficiency and material selection. The original building was designed and executed by the studio Adhoc msl and the architect Enrique Carbonell at the end of the 1990s. The general scheme of the building was determined by four classroom and office blocks, with east-west orientation, that cross with two perpendicular communication rooms, with north-south orientation.

Given the Customer’s request, we designed a Preliminary Study for adequacy, rehabilitation and construction of “School 2027” (Public-Private Partnership) for the District of Maianga in Angola’s capital Luanda. The school will be located on a flat terrain, with an area of about 5 square meters, given the proposed Program of Architectural Renovation of space. Following this proposal, we adopt as a basic premise the initial use of the central space not yet occupied for subsequent demolition of existing blocks, formerly, without interfering with the normal course of lessons.

Elevated Sports Court at Lasalle Franciscana School in Zaragoza, Spain by Guzmán de Yarza Blache Architect

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Article source: Guzmán de Yarza Blache Architect

The commission is originated by the need from the school to augment the total surface of the courtyard that due to the great amount of students and parents that usually gather during the day, can sometimes obstruct the correct developing of the sports and leisure activities that should take place in it. The courtyard is 33 meters wide per 35 meters long and has a South East Orientation. It is formed by the existing school that has a U form with two wings, one from the 50´s and another one form the 70´s.

Nebula Portable Arts Space in Dingley, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

An old school room in outer-suburban Dingley was the studio of the Art Day South artists. 12 artists, each with an intellectual disability, and 4 art mentors were producing wonderful art in banal surroundings, isolated from other art groups and organisations. For artists like Howard Arkaley and Jeffrey Smart the suburbs are their muse; for the Art Day South artists their singular suburban spot isolated and marginalised them. Like so many people with disabilities the Art Day South artists were relegated to the fringe of our culture.

The IUFM (Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres – Primary School Teacher Training Institute) is located in the former Ecole Normale pour Garçons, a building dating from 1885 in a large property called Clos Fayet in the Croix-Rousse district of Lyon. This building has all the architectural features of the typical late 19th century to mid-20th century French school. It has been inopportunely encroached upon by recent constructions.

Green Dot Animo Leadership High School in South Los Angeles by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This new public school for 500 students is located in a tough South Los Angeles neighborhood almost directly under the flight path into LAX and adjacent to the very busy 105 Century freeway.  The design was influenced by the New Orleans architects Curtis and Davis who designed and built many schools in the early 1950s in Louisiana.  Their designs adapted to the harsh southern climate without using air conditioning, creating sustainable light filled and poetic spaces for kids to learn.
