School building architecture has greatly gained in pedagogical significance during the last years. Students of the 21st century have access to increasingly more workspaces customized for various studies, rooms for teamwork and cafeterias. Multi-functional communal spaces, exhibition spaces and sports facilities also play an important role in education.
Creating spaces that take into account both students' educational needs and their well-being is one of the most exciting and challenging tasks of contemporary school building design. School presents international projects which set themselves apart not only with their modern architectural vocabulary, but also with their architects hope of being their contribution to the improvement of educational standards.
