PPAG exhibition of a “School About Schools,” on a scale of 1:1.
Central issues on building contemporary educational facilities are addressed at 19 stations based on projects designed by PPAG in recent years.
More schools than ever before are being built across Europe. In cities like Berlin or Vienna, huge school construction offensives are underway. These new school buildings will shape the city, society and education as a whole for decades. Development of those spaces is a chance for the future and should be the subject of public discussion on a broadest possible scale.
This exhibition and catalog discuss core topics of contemporary educational architecture in 19 stations based on built and unbuilt projects designed by PPAG in recent years. They demonstrate that it is possible to unite innovative pedagogy, architecture, esthetics and cost-effectiveness on a high level. To that end, the exhibition space itself will become an education on education on a 1:1 scale. The catalog documents this learning excursion.
The exhibition catalog is not only intended to accompany the exhibition, it is also an independent publication that should not only be understood in the context of the exhibition.
