Space and Learning: Lessons in Architecture 3
Schools loom large in the built oeuvre of Herman Hertzberger; to date, more than 30 of his designs have been constructed. School design, according to Hertzberger, is one of the few areas in architecture today where designers are still able to define and influence human conditions. In his opinion, school buildings require striking a balance between use, performance and an architecture informed by education. School buildings need re-inventing on each new occasion, particularly given current developments in education which are shifting away from the traditional approach to one more targeted at the individual. "Space and Learning" brings together Hertzberger's knowledge and ideas in a theoretical study of the spatial conditions of learning, lavishly illustrated throughout with the architect's own work and that of others.
