With urban populations rapidly increasing, governments and educational institutions must continue to build new schools to keep up with demand, thus placing greater focus on the design of these schools. Schools should be durable, flexible facilities that are adaptable for future needs, and enable students with varied abilities, interests and backgrounds to flourish.

How do we create dynamic learning spaces that improve student health, wellbeing and academic performance now and into the future?

Building the Schools of Tomorrow: Adapting the design of learning and teaching environments for health, wellbeing and future flexibility tackles this question by exploring the key parameters that are taking on increasing importance in modern education design. The areas explored in this paper include: the use and influence of colour in educational spaces; improving indoor air quality;  caring for the environment; the role of acoustic design; encouraging participation in sports; and enhancing accessibility and inclusion through design.
