Summary

Presenting qualitative and quantative findings from the unique, multi-disciplinary project, Design Matters?, this timely book explores the complex relationship between school design and practice to consider how environmental aspects impact on the day-to-day perceptions, actions and behaviours of pupils, teachers, leaders and professionals within the school community.

Exploring debates and issues from a number of different professional and academic perspectives, School Design Matters results from rich collaboration between schools, architects, engineers, educationalists and policy makers to consider what an inspiring teaching and learning environment might look like. Case studies and first-hand student and teacher experience allow analysis of the ways in which environmental factors might transform pedagogy, shape patterns of leadership, improve student engagement and enhance social interactions within and beyond the school community. Experts in their fields, authors acknowledge the significance of socio-cultural contexts, reference relevant policy, and tackle the tensions, dilemmas and contradictions which frequently arise as schools, and professionals in the design and construction sectors collaborate in the creation of buildings which fulfil the needs of diverse, invested parties.

Offering a uniquely holistic approach to understanding the ways in which design may contribute, shape and mediate teaching and learning, this comprehensive text will be essential reading for educationalists, architects, policy makers and professionals involved in the design, construction and use of school buildings.
