ENSTA, ParisTech Engineering School’s in Paris, France by Jean-Baptiste Lacoudre Architectures

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Article source: Jean-Baptiste Lacoudre Architectures

The new campus of ENSTA Paris Tech, which invested the location of Palaiseau, perfectly merges into the geometry of the structuring axes of the “Ecole Polytechnique”. In the heart of the area, it provides a new identity to the landscape..
The school, which is the main building of ENSTA ParisTech campus, lands along the boulevard surrounded by a vast redesigned space with lawns and trees. The exterior conviviality space, which is naturally blended into the rolling design of the park, provides plenty of space for social interaction.

Nursery School in Berriozar, Spain by Javier Larraz Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Javier Larraz, Iñigo Beguiristain and Iñaki Bergera

According to Louis I. Kahn the first school began under a tree, when a man who knew he was a teacher began to discuss what he had learned with others who did not know they were students. Like those students, children under 3 years old learn intuitively and unconsciously. Drawing a parallel with the story of Kahn, one might wonder about the role that tree, that is, architecture, plays in the practice of teaching.

School House and kindergarten in Grono, Switzerland by Raphael Zuber Architekt

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Article source: Raphael Zuber Architekt

The building stands in the middle of a garden on a public square. The square is a uniformly sloping paved surface, planted with walnut trees and is the playground for the school. The garden is a circular crater, overgrown with a field of flowers, and is the outside play area for the kindergarten. The geometry of the garden and the level of the building are determined by a quadrate horizontal surface on which the building stands and by the two approaches.

Arcadia High School Performing Arts Center in Acradia, California by McCarthy Building Companies

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Article source: McCarthy Building Companies

A 60-year old wish for the community of Arcadia has finally come true with the opening of Arcadia Unified School District’s new $20 million Performing Arts Center. It was the District’s intent to build an auditorium in 1952 when the high school was originally constructed, but there was no funding.  Due to the passage of Bond Measure I in 2006, the District finally had a chance to fulfill this community’s enduring dream.

“We are exceptionally pleased to have realized the dream of providing our students, faculty and community members with a world class performing arts venue that will become a home for the arts in Arcadia,” said AUSD Superintendent Dr. Joel Shawn. “All aspects of the arts are an essential component of a rigorous education for our students and a healthy, vibrant community.”

SCHOOL IN TARRAGONA by Batlle and Roig architects

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: Batlle and Roig architects

Nowadays designing an education facility, either a school o a high school, means working with a series of preset and regulated parameters by the administrations commissioning the project. These parameters go from the qualification and quantification of the program, to the election of the structural and construction methods to erect the building. This design constraint favors undoubtedly the speed of the design process and the construction of the building, and has become over time a typological system that delves into the concept of generic architecture, that has seems so appreciable at the moment due to economical reasons.
