Designing school together, between pedagogy and architecture

Beate Weyland | Associate Professor, Faculty of Education of the Free University of Bolzano

This article presents some findings from a research project carried out together with architect Sandy Attia between 2010‐2014 funded by the Department of Education of the Free University of Bolzano (Weyland, Attia, 2015). The research frames 10 case studies of schools built in the past decade (preschools, kindergartens and primary schools) in the context of the contemporary debate surrounding the relationship between architecture and pedagogy in the South Tyrol region of Italy. The focus of the research resides in the processes that lead up to the design and construction of a new or renovated school, analyzing the trajectories that each project takes in relationship to the projects’ final outcomes.
