Leitlinien für Planung und Entwurf

Edited by: Prue Chiles
For some time now, school buildings have represented an important field in architecture, and there is an enduring interest in the challenges this design task presents. This publication explains in eleven chapters the central parameters for this architectural typology: The role of the school in the community or neighborhood, questions of sustainability, flexible spaces for learning, the role of furniture, participation in the design process, learning outside the classroom, landscape design, opportunities and challenges of special schools, and the role of new pedagogical concepts. Each theme is thoroughly investigated and illustrated with numerous buildings presenting model solutions for specific problems or aspects.
New school buildings are in increasing demand Numerous international case studies demonstrate exemplary design ideas Team of authors from the University of Sheffield presenting current research


"Der Band präsentiert aber nicht nur gute Ideen und schöne Lösungen, sondern das Team hat auch nachgefragt, wie es in den einzelnen Ländern aussieht mit den Investitonen in den Schulbau."Klaus Will in: Berliner Bildungszeitschrift 3/2016
