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 to develop SchoolParasites, provisional structures, flexible in application and striking in design, as an attractive alternative to the usual trailer-type provisional classrooms.
This book documents the designs of Barend Koolhaas, Onix and Christoph Seyferth. It also covers far-reaching questions on the interaction of education and architecture, on the inventiveness of the schools themselves, on permanence and temporariness, and on how intelligent, flexible solutions can play a role in the restructuring of post-war urban areas.
