Event description

Description

Dense inner city school campuses are demanding newer types of education building. In order to provide great learning spaces and maximise play area, many schools are thinking outside the box to commission tailored and inventive design solutions to meet the needs of their students, teachers and neighbourhoods.

Matthew Gribben of Matthew Gribben Architecture will discuss his Australia Street Infants School Library, a unique project that challenged the assumptions of standard school building design.

Giles Parker from Neeson Murcutt Architects will present two recent alterations and additions projects for Sydney Catholic Schools, St Columba's Primary School in Leichhardt and Bethlehem College Ashfield, under construction. Both projects are transformative, reorganising the schools as a whole and reshaping their learning spaces to reflect new pedagogy where every space is a space for learning.

Curated and introduced by local architects Sam Rigoli, Michael Zanardo, Casey Bryant and Lisa Merkesteyn, the Architecture on Show talks are presented by the Inner West Council in association with the Australian Institute of Architects.
