Learning from Schools is the third title to be published on the work of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios by Artifice books on architecture, with the previous titles being Dwelling Accordia and Education Architecture Urbanism, Three University Projects. Learning from Schools focuses on the work of the practice given their award-winning school building programme, which includes St Mary Magdalene Academy, Chelsea Academy, Isaac Newton Academy and Northampton Academy, amongst many others.
Learning from Schools is organised in three sections: “Pedagogy”, “Technology” and “Architecture”. Each of these sections provides a way into Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ work across a wide variety of school buildings. Learning from Schools touches on how concerns such as acoustics, circulation spaces and the use of different materials have been deployed in the practice’s architecture so as to improve student performance and wellbeing.
Learning from Schools will be followed by a further publication which focuses on the work of the practice that concerns buildings for cultural activities in a wider sense.
