CELE Exchange, Article 4 Mar 2011
The Korean Educational Development Institute (KEDI) has recently initiated a pilot project to develop a new prototype school, involving users in the design phase. This is the first time in Korea that users have been consulted on issues relating to school design. One of KEDI's objectives is to integrate specific elements into school design such as green and community issues. This constitutes a meaningful challenge for the school design industry, which has adapted relatively slowly to today's fast-moving society. The concept of designing a multiple-school complex is not rare in Korea. An efficient framework called Build-Transfer-Lease (BTL) is in place and steers new school design and delivery projects; however, it lacks user participation in the design process. In response, KEDI has launched a pilot project to address this problem. This article discusses the results of Phase 1 of the project.
