New Australian High School Represents the Future of Education Facility Design: Kingston High School, Tasmania, Australia
Deni, Adriano
Educational Facility Planner, v46 n1 p28-29 2012
The brief from local government called for an environmentally sustainable school that establishes new models for excellence in curriculum, teaching, and learning. With its visionary sine wave design concept, flexible learning areas, shared community spaces and "extensive" green roof system--a first for an Australian school--the new $33 million Kingston High School sets an exciting standard for education facility design. Kingston sets a new benchmark for excellence in sustainability and education. The school's sustainability initiatives are leading edge. And, importantly, its learning pods, learning street, and site layout seek to inspire students and encourage deep enquiry.
