The Infinity Centre in Keilor East, Victoria, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

The Infinity Centre, the new campus for Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School senior students, is derived from the initial idea that the library, a learning hub, is central to the school. We also wanted a building that offered protection from a windswept site and signified the merging of two schools, Penleigh Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Essendon Grammar School for boys.

Kensington High School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA by SMP Architects

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: SMP Architects

Youth United for Change, a teenage activist group in this distressed urban neighborhood, was instrumental in charging the School District of Philadelphia (SDP) to create a smaller high school that would encourage students to graduate rather than drop out with little hope for the future. Coupled with this request was their desire for “a green school” that would provide a bright, healthy learning environment, in contrast to their home living conditions.

Hämeenkyrö Environmental School in Finland by Hyperbuildings

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Hyperbuildings

Mahnala environmental school is located in a rural setting in central Finland a few kilometers north of the city of Tampere. Currently the school is housed in an old building dating from 1903. This building is highly representative of the Finnish vernacular school- house of the time. As such it is an iconic symbol of the long-standing tradition of educational facilities on the site. The old building, however, has been undersized to house the activities of the growing municipality for years already.
