Many schools have to contend with the tension between an inflexible building and constantly changing requirements for use. WiMBY! (Welcome into My Backyard!) therefore commissioned three designers, Barend Koolhaas, Onix and Christoph Seyferth to develop SchoolParasites, provisional structures, flexible in application and striking in design, as an attractive alternative to the usual container-type provisional classrooms. This book documents these designs and also covers far-reaching questions on the interaction of education and architecture. back
