Schools Ideas Project —
Schools Ideas Project: Fraher Architects in their teaching role at Nottingham University, have been involved in the National Schools Ideas Projects.
“The National Schools Ideas Project is an academic programme running during 2009-10 linked to the DCSF’s Primary Capital Programme and Building Schools for the Future. The programme incorporates a number of public events during the process, and will culminate in a DCSF and RIBA endorsed publication and accompanying travelling exhibition illustrating the work of an emerging generation.
The aim of this project is to contribute to ongoing and emerging debates in school design and to the DCSF’s thinking, utilising students’ recent experiences in education and ability to take a fresh position in relation to current guidance. The project offers schools and school children an opportunity to be actively involved in design, research and realisation, exciting them about their environment. This linked programme is cultivating links between schools of architecture and their constituencies while offering students of architecture an involvement in a complex debate, which will offer them exposure to potential employment in a competitive sector.”
This was the second event of the academic year, to which we brought five students from Nottingham University to present the Chilwell School project. It was a very successful day with so many ideas, thanks and well done to Nick, Sara, Alex, Jess and Nick for their time and help with the event.
