Tall Schools, Tight Spaces: Giving Students Access to the Outdoors
Perhaps the greatest potential drawback of taller urban schools is the lack of access they provide their students to outdoors. These schools are usually on tight lots with little, if any, play areas or fields. So they have to make do with the outdoor space that’s available to them, or make arrangements with other public facilities.
“Multilevel schools are a balancing act that weighs the cost of land against the growing demand from families moving back into cities,” says Principal Todd Ferking. One of DLR Group’s projects that tackles these issues is the Huili School for the Wellington International Education Group in Shanghai, China.
