The Building as an Educational Tool - A Competitive Sport Boarding School
MetadataShow full item record
As the topic for my master's thesis, I wanted to challenge myself with a project to which I have a personal connection and use my experience for designing. At 13 years old, I went ot a competitive sport boarding school for 5 years. This time left me with a very distinctive and also some negative impressions. The complex was made out of a couple, by a narrow hallway connected, buildings. On one hand a very practical concept, that shortend commuting intensively around the complex, but on the other hand the surrounding fabric had no influence and connection to it and the complex could be placed anywhere. That is why I would like to take a closer look at what this building can actually be and stand for while, being a place for education and also use it's design and intentions for part of the education. Thesis Questions: What is the place of education? How can the importance of the school be translated into architecture? What can stuidents learn from the building itself? How is the relationship between the school and the community defined?
