SCHULBAU IN ÖSTERREICH 1996-2011
Ways into the future
Every fifteen years, the Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture has the Austrian school system evaluated. Currently, twenty-three carefully selected examples have been documented in detail using the planning material. In addition to the architects‘ intentions, the description texts already contain user feedback. The general part preceding the individual documentations covers topics such as location, new construction or refurbishment and extension of existing buildings, building typology and building technology, classroom and school open space. However, the emphasis is not on the daily topicality, but on a broad overview of developments. Authors from the university sector enter into discourse with experts organised in various specialist circles and platforms.
