Schools for Today and Tomorrow: An International Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Programme on Educational Building.
Improving the quality of educational buildings is one of the objectives of the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Programme on Educational Building (PEB). The PEB does this by disseminating information about ways to produce quality educational buildings at a reasonable cost. This report contains descriptions of buildings from OECD member countries that illustrate good architectural design and management in schools. The schools were selected on behalf of the PEB by an international jury. The innovative facilities were nominated for their: (1) special contribution to teaching and learning; (2) special awareness of the architectural heritage or their surrounding environment; (3) particular contribution to urban renewal or to the resolution of urban problems; (4) particular contribution to education and community life in rural areas; or (5) imaginative use of buildings and grounds. Photographs, floor plans, and illustrations accompany the text. (LMI)
