A school in Flatdal
MetadataShow full item record
Have todays schools become another victim of the economies of scale? The small school are unfortunately a dying race. “A school in Flatdal” is a project that explores the potential of the small school. How architecture can create space for learning and how the small school can create room for architecture. But what is really a good space for learning, or a good school? I think one answer is somewhere in the meeting between play and focus. Thoughtfulness around contact between people, buildings and nature. Equally important are the structural choices that unite the construction and technical solutions, the materials, the spatial experiences and where you take off your rubber boots on your way in from an expedition in the nearby stream. All these pieces play an important role in the whole.
