Gallery: 6 Exceptional Eco Schools

 

APAP Open School

LOT-EK came up with this funky art school made from shipping containers in Korea. The building's yellow kinetic shape is a dynamic presence made from 8 angled converted shipping containers lifted 3 meters off the ground. Two studios, a large meeting room, and a gallery make up the inside program, and the covered open area below serves as an amphitheater and performance space.

The Green School

This magnificent school campus in Bali is made entirely from sustainably harvested bamboo. Architecture firm PT Bambu developed the rich environment, which consists of four classrooms, housing, offices, cafes, a gym, and the Heart of the School, a spiraling, multi-story building. The school also runs on clean energy systems like solar power, a biomass boiler, and a micro-hydro generator. Of course, sustainability is a core element of the children’s education.

Project FROG

Modular thinking has gone high-tech with Project FROG‘s Zero Energy Classroom, which is a meticulously designed kit that allows a school to get up and running in as short a time as possible. The design’s success is not just due to its speedy installation however — the carefully concieved space is flooded with indirect daylight and is precisely engineered to provide plenty of clean air. The buildings are also designed to exceed energy code by 25%, keeping the school’s budget intact. With the installation of optional solar arrays, the buildings can be zero energy.
