The word ‘school’ evokes a specific image– green lawns, bustling corridors, and neatly sectioned areas for curricular and extracurricular activities. For a myriad of reasons, however, this image is changing. Schools today must provide instruction and inculcate discipline within their students and enable exploration, community-building, and creative expression.
However, contrary to popular belief, spatial flexibility is not predicated on-site area alone. One example where a rich programmatic blend has been accommodated on a relatively small site is Amity Global School in Gurugram, India.
