Interaction and Collaboration: Saunalahti School by VERSTAS Architects

Interaction and Collaboration: Saunalahti School by VERSTAS Architects | scatol8® | Scoop.it

In the “Future School” educational activities will increasingly take place outside the traditional classroom and introduce new ways of learning.

Saunalahti school is a building tailored to support the pedagogical ideas of a forward-looking school. In its operation, the school puts special emphasis on new ways of learning, art and physical education and collaboration. The building supports these ideas by creating places for interaction of various scales and atmospheres.

New York's 1st Net Zero Energy School

New York's 1st Net Zero Energy School | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The first net zero energy school in New York State broke ground today; the school, located on a 3.5-acre site in Richmond, Staten Island, will be a 444-seat primary school.


Roger Duffy, FAIA, SOM Design Partner and head of the firm’s Education Lab called this project, “an extraordinary opportunity to help define the next generation of energy efficient school buildings for New York City and beyond.”
Bruce Barrett, Vice President of Architecture & Engineering described the intentions for this project: Using this unique project as a vehicle, the SCA (New York City School Construction Authority) will explore new and higher levels of sustainability by embarking on the construction of a Net Zero Energy School Building. Recognizing Mayor Bloomberg’s and New York City’s commitment to sustainability in general, and to energy conservation specifically, we have challenged ourselves to go beyond building code and design standards to realize innovative energy and carbon reductions exceeding our current achievements. We want to push the envelope on this advanced green project, which will be our ‘sustainability lab.’

Melbourne's Bentleigh School wins most sustainable educational institution at International Green Awards

Melbourne's Bentleigh School wins most sustainable educational institution at International Green Awards | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Bentleigh Secondary School in Melbourne's east has been named the most sustainable educational institution according to the International Green Awards which were held in London this month.
Suters Architects have been involved with the school over many years in the redevelopment of the entire campus and worked in partnership with the college to design stages 1 and 2. Project Leader, John Schout said that the campus has a positive effect on the environment as well as changing the behaviour of staff and students to best practice environmental management:
"A new building, a Meditation and Indigenous Cultural Centre, designed entirely of timber is an example of sustainable carbon capture principles and will be completed in 2013. Key ESD initiatives include shading and natural light, solar panels, water treatment and wetlands and a planned thermal heating and cooling system."
