Schools have always been a popular building type for architects. New ideas about pedagogy conceptions are forcing architects to reconsider long-held assumptions about these time-honored structures. Schools and Kindergartens is a practical introduction to school design and an international guide to seventy built projects in North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. Included are examples from acclaimed architects such as Foster and Partners, Behnisch & Partner, SOM, Herman Hertzberger, and others. The book also includes in-depth discussions of issues such as zoning and the diversity of social conditions.
