'Disruptive Design' visit
Principals, Luisa Manfredini + David McCrae visited Northern Beaches Christian School (NBCS), organised by Association for Learning Environments NSW.
WMK Architecture designed a covered outdoor community space, classrooms, staff areas and a café. The 11m high roof canopy – geographical school centre. Associated spaces designed using ‘disruptive’ ideas; challenging the traditional school learning model.
3,000m2 roof canopy creates indoor-outdoor gathering space
roof rain water irrigates planting via mist spraying
solar roof panels
technology: public Wi-Fi + large outdoor screens
Impressive, design progressive, inclusive design work!
Experiencing different models of learning + design will assist future design.
We aim to create best possible student learning experience at Pittwater House Schools, Collaroy.
