They reveal the ways in which schools, by their actual physical situation, make clear their place in society as fragmented sites of cultural memory. School also demonstrates how the lives of individual architects, designers and educators have become caught up in the project of re-imagining and re-designing schools through past and present waves of school-building activity." "The authors consider how new technologies and continuing globalization will inevitably force us to rethink our notions of 'school' - and school buildings. In the twenty-first century, these shifts represent a radically new context for education. School will provide stimulating reading for anyone interested in this extraordinary evolution of architecture and education."--BOOK JACKET."
