Do not Just Rebuild Schools—Reinvent Them

Don't Just Rebuild Schools—Reinvent Them
Rather than simply be invested in short-term fixes, any new support for school facilities that districts receive should go to develop tomorrow’s facilities as infrastructure responses to an educational philosophy—one whose goal is not to control students, but to empower them to take charge of their own learning.

Essential Aspects of Designing a School

Our samples have been in the State of Georgia and may not necessarily generalize to other areas. We were successful in finding 29 design patterns that significantly relate to student achievement. In all cases statistical controls were placed on social and economic variables to eliminate bias. The following list represents findings from two studies ....

Nature's Design Rules
http://www.asbj.com/lbd/2000/00inprint/00reicher.html
Some of our nation's most important buildings--the schools where our children learn to be the leaders of tomorrow--need the most attention and hold the greatest opportunity for improvement. By designing to lead, we also are designing to learn, because evidence is growing that energy-efficient schools can provide learning environments that lead to improved student performance.
Designers have an obligation to lead the way to a clean energy future, in part by designing buildings that follow nature's design rules.
