The school designs (new construction, refurbishment, renovation or expansion) are crucial and concerned with natural environment, urbanisation and urban life, which bring new and more missions and responsibilities to school designs. Schools must to be the organic part of the urban life, no longer to be a closed, even isolated place to their neighbours in a city. Modern school designs present three characters: quality-control is always first, sustainability is in; schools are the new centre of community residents’ life. We selected 42 school designs by world architects and interior designers, including primary and secondary schools and professional training schools. Let’s enjoy these wonderful works.
