The architecture used to create educational environments strongly influences how both students and teachers perform. Spaces that stimulate while at the same time helping students to concentrate, in the long-run, will make a valuable contribution to shaping the societies we live in. This book presents a collection of schools, universities and institutes, designed to encourage, stimulate and focus the minds of their users. Full-color photographs, together with plans and explanations from the architects themselves guide readers through this invaluable resource, and provide inspiration for architects, students of architecture and anyone involved in the immensely important field of education.
