Abstract:

"Schools loom large in the comprehensive body of work designed by Herman Hertzberger; more than thirty have been built to date. School-building, according to Hertzberger, is one of the few areas in architecture today where designers are still able to define and influence human conditions. In his opinion, school buildings require striking a balance between use, performance and an architecture informed by education. School buildings need re-inventing on each new occasion, particularly given current developments in education which are shifting away from the traditional approach to one more targeted at the individual. This clearly necessitates a trade-off between education, educational systems and architecture. Space and Learning brings together Hertzberger's knowledge and ideas in a theoretical study of the spatial conditions of learning, lavishly illustrated throughout with the architect's own work and that of others."--Back cover.
