The evening focused on innovative examples of school design in London, funding new schools in a period of economic difficulty and solving the need for more school places. Using ArchitecturePLB projects as examples Rachel discussed two themes. The opportunities that arise from sharing space were illustrated using examples of all age schools, co-located special and mainstream schools and schools with community-use facilities. The second theme explored how a little more time spent understanding each school’s needs could lead to innovative design solutions that deliver “more for less”.
