NLA’s busy Autumn programme kicked off this morning with a full-house at this month’s education breakfast talk ‘London’s Learning’.
An audience of over 200 architects, borough representatives, engineers, consultants and developers joined us at NLA to hear a review of three recent exemplary education projects in London: The Elmgreen School in Lambeth, University of the Arts at Kings Cross, and St Paul’s Academy in Greenwich.
The projects brought up some interesting issues and debates around the design consultation process, the relationship between architect and client, and the procurement of school buildings, and showcased some interesting developments in education design including intelligent climate control systems, spaces for passive supervision and flexible breakout spaces.
Speakers were: Michael Olliff, Architectural Director at Scott Brownrigg, Paul Williams, Director at Stanton Williams and Ben Marston, Associate Director at Jestico + Whiles.
NLA's education series continues with a half-day conference 'The Future of the School Building Programme in London' on the 8th October. Click here for more details.
