Michael Faraday Community School – Alsop…

Some amazing images of a recently opened school in Southwark, London.

In the AJ article, Will Alsop explains that one of the key things which stuck in his mind from the parents and children, was the need to design a place which was really exciting and unusual, so the kids would want to go there. This school is located in an urban setting whose demographic rating (ACORN) puts it among the lowest categories in terms of deprivation and ‘inner city adversity’.

I love the contrast in forms and colours between the roof and yellow stair feature, around a central courtyard. Amazing use of light and colour.
