Interesting report published today by RIBA evaluating school design in the UK.
Some really intersting stuff – see extract below:

The RIBA believes the Government should review how the current generation
of centrally planned school building projects is working. The new approach
adopted by the Government when it established the EFA has succeeded in
delivering schools to incredibly tight budgets, but it has also proved to be
hugely restrictive in terms of the design and timeframes allowed for the
construction of new schools. This one-size-fits-all approach means that
opportunities to innovate or respond to local context to optimise investment
are being curtailed. With the right reforms, the results could be much better.

At the heart of our argument is our belief that giving the teams designing
and building new schools greater flexibility will enable future schools to
benefit from the expertise of the professionals involved.

top marks for frank?
