Secondary school in Gando with passive ventilation system in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso by Francis Kere Architecture (designed with AutoCAD and Rhino)

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: Francis Kere Architecture

This school project in one of the world’s poorest countries aims to provide further education to the inhabitants of a rural area. Gando, with a population of 3000, has no secondary education facilities and lies on the southern plains of Burkina Faso, some 200km from the capital Ouagadougou. Diverse design aspects of the project consider the challenging weather conditions where summer temperatures peak at 40°C.

Vertical Campus in Larvik, Norway by CEBRA

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: CEBRA

Vertical Campus is a substantial extension to the local school. In the northern hemisphere, it makes sense to build compact buildings because they are economic and reduce heat loss, and also because this ensures short internal distances and synergies between different functions. In addition to being a compact school, the Vertikal Campus has a small footprint. First of all, this makes it possible to reuse the old foundations, which is important due to highly complicated geotechnical circumstances. Secondly, it leaves more outdoor park area for the children and creates distance to neighboring houses.

There is a relationship point of view (a view relation) with the Paris business district La Défense. The highly frequented, Route Nationale 314 runs west to the school building.

Flor del Campo in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia by Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

This project is characterized by four “Rings”, each of which is defined by two levels with different thicknesses, rounding different playgrounds. The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed. It was inspired by the shapes of tropical plants and trees in the area, taking us to a recreational atmosphere of games, educational exchanges, etc.

A Small School in The Grand Paris By Hubert & Roy Architectes Et Associés

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Article source: Hubert & Roy Architectes Et Associés

The school at Le Bourget is modelled after its changing neighbourhood, an area facing the landscape of Grand Paris, connected to the city by green “corridors”, and brought near Paris thanks to its nearby train station. Just like a vertebrate organism slipping into the fragmented plot, the school is designed based on a structure entirely made out of timber, digitized and optimized, prefabricated in a workshop-factory and mounted in a few months by two craftsmen. This structure, including structural frames every 1.50 m, is covered with a green roof for water retention and thermal mass. Elevations of the structure are cladded with glass and aluminium panels aligned on the 1.50 m frame to frame distance. Therefore, the aluminium envelope is only 4 mm thick and the insulation fits within the thickness of the structure.

Gil Vicente High School in Lisbon, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Article source: Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

From an architectural point of view, the intervention cherished the idea of identification and inventory of the universe to safeguard, suggesting that the new volumes could act as a framework for the pre-existent elements.

The building is structured based on the idea of creating a central core, containing the collective use spaces, functioning as an interface between two large blocks of teaching, sports and recreational spaces.

Públia Hortênsia de Castro High School in Vila Viçosa, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

The intervention area consisted of school grounds, vast and arid, where, between the existing buildings, three large pine trees grew. The central block had social and management functions; other two held classrooms and laboratories, another was still devoted to workshops and, finally, a sports pavilion. Functionally outdated, formally unattractive and structurally fragile, it denoted an aging prematurely equipment and an obvious inability to become warm and friendly to the school community.

Sport College in Leidsche Rijn, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

Situated in the Leidsche Rijn, a newly built housing district within the periphery of Utrecht, the Sports Campus aims to contribute a public and rather iconographic aspect to the predominantly low-rise area, lacking points of recognition. Two schools, divided up into four wings, stretched out onto the boundaries of the terrain, are organized around a centrally positioned volume containing the shared facilities.

Mosaica Academy in Washington, D.C. by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Mosaica Academy is a new charter school located in the southeast quadrant of Washington, DC. The design of the school is based on the Paragon Teaching Method employed by the school, which replaces traditional history and social studies curriculum. The school program encourages students to gain a historical understanding through the chronological study of the evolution of world cultures, encouraging them to identify associated interrelationships and develop a larger picture of history as opposed to memorizing isolated events. The building is designed to exemplify the Mosaica teaching model and physically represent the program inspired within each space.
