Schools and Kindergartens: A Design Manual (Birkhäuser, 2007) by Mark Dudek is a comprehensive guide to up-to-date educational architecture.
What is the relationship between pedagogical visions and spaces for children? This question is a key to understanding good educational architecture. While we need buildings which respond to the immediate requirements of contemporary society, the schools and kindergartens we build now are also for a future which is hard to predict. School buildings need ‘future proofing,’ as these new schools will still be in use at the end of this century.
With over 80 case studies from Europe, America and the Pacific Region, this is an essential guide for architects involved in the design of schools and kindergartens.
