Combustion of this sort is fast and ferocious and tests have shown fires can chase down corridors or up stairwells faster than most people can run. It is for this reason that the Department of Trade and Industry's (DTI's) Fire Safety Code of Practice recommends that where multiple layers of paint exist, walls should be... More

Project • By What ArchitecturePrimary Schools

Cowley St Laurence Church of England Primary School and Children's Centre

Can you imagine a future where children participate in the formation of their own learning environments? Where kids design and build their own schools?

LEGO® was used as a design tool because modelling with it is quick, playful, conducive to experimentation and allows for design democracy: anyone can be the architect! You too can participate! By abandoning the flatness of 2D drawi... More
