La Arquitectura Escolar: Estudio de Percepciones
School Architecture: Perceptions Study
We show a recent research on school architecture in Spain. After a historical and academic review, we interviewed fourteen expert informants (four inspectors, four architects, three Government managers and three state school principals) to know their perceptions of how schools are made and what role pedagogy plays before centers are built. Respondents stressed that too often political demands and economic and temporal constraints outweigh the requirements of users. In addition, they suggested that their judgment should be taken into account. Consequently, we propose the creation of a permanent advisory committee on school architecture towards the Administration, to improve the flexible design and construction of schools and high schools for the general benefit.
