Masterclass: School design in the current funding context

Opportunities to design new schools are few and the budgets to build them are restricted, but new schools, school buildings and extensions are being built and there is still scope to create exciting environments for learning and buildings that enrich their communities.  At this masterclass leading designers will talk about how to commission and design high quality educational buildings even in today’s straightened times.

This masterclass will include looking at educational projects that are funded by new developments, and through other sources of investment. Leading architects will present exemplar case studies, and the principles, policies and strategies underlying them. Delegates will gain a clear understanding of how school quality can be enhanced, and how education buildings can physically and socially interface with the public realm and with their local communities.
