The school is developing into a full-time model in many countries, with homework help, a cafeteria and recreational activities. Pioneering pedagogical methods of instruction and learning are bringing with them changing planning requirements. Just as the classical teaching structure is being broken up, new classrooms are becoming more flexible. When planning, new functional areas and modified principles of spatial organisation have to be considered as well as issues such as inclusion, participatory planning forms, and aspects of sustainability, room comfort, and lighting. This publication deals with various school concepts as spaces for learning, socialising and living and presents 20 project examples from design to final details.
