The Irish Times reports on the future of the physical structure of schools, using the example of Dublin’s Inchicore National School, where architects merged the building with the green world in which it sits. “Not only is this a fine modern building, with classrooms looking out onto the dense canopy of chestnut trees that are so close you could almost touch them. It is also a expert renovation of the old school, restoring the classrooms to their full height as well as carving out a new enclosed courtyard space.”
