School building architecture has greatly gained in pedagogical significance dur-ing the last years. Students of the 21st century have access to increasingly more workspaces customized for various studies, rooms for teamwork and cafeterias. Multi-functional communal spaces, exhibition spaces and sports facilities also play an important role in education if you happen to be hitting the books in a newly built or a recently expanded building. Schools – Educational Spaces presents more than 60 international projects which set themselves apart not only with their modern architectural vocabulary, but also with their architects’ hope of being their contribution to the improvement of educational standards, placed of late under the scrutinizing eye of the media.
