Paperback 192 Pages
Uniquely Future Schools not only provides design guidance on themes in schools architecture and a wealth of recent innovative projects drawn from the UK but also an understanding of the socio-political and economic context that any practice must work within when taking on a schools project.It balances beautiful visuals and innovative case studies with in-depth discussion of the thought processes and issues to consider in good school design. Reflecting on ambitious projects during the BSF period of high investment and post-BSF creativity and innovation during austerity it considers the next phase of school design shaped by growing student numbers, diversity in project types and routes and the growing opportunities for smaller practices as work on existing buildings becomes more common. Edited by an architect specialising in the schools sector and a leading educationalist and featuring contributions from a wealth of designers, clients and experts in school design this book aims to provide fresh ideas as well as experience and hard-earned knowledge from a variety of perspectives. Aimed at architects and designers working in the schools sector or hoping to break into it this guide will also inspire clients, end-users and educationalists who are commissioning and briefing refurbishments, extensions and new schools.
