HUMANIST KINDERCENTRUM ALLES-IN-EEN-SCHOOL AMSTERDAM

The construction of the building continues. We took the staff on a tour of the building site, so they could see the building work in progress. It was great for them to get the feel for the spaces in which they will very soon be working.

Humanistisch Kindercentrum – Alles-in een School – Amsterdam

The shell of the building is emerging from the sea of scaffolding!  The ellipse of the aula space can be clearly seen with the staircase to the first floor cast into one end. Some of the scaffolding is at a slight angle because the roof gently rises towards the north side of the building.

Redefining Brutalism- study trip to Glasgow

Academie van Bouwkunst, P4 studio students, have just completed a study trip to Glasgow led by Jo Barnett. Our primary purpose was to visit the fabulous ruin that is St Peters Seminary by Gillespie Kidd and Coia. This will be the site of the students proposed project.

This image, also from our trip, shows the entry into St Brides in East Kilbride another of GK&C’s works near Glasgow which is currently very much a functioning building.

Big thank you to Richard Proudly and Dennis Meijerink for their informative in-put at the start of the project, and to Anne Koenig from Berlin who joined our trip, bringing with her a valuable wider European outlook. Also indebted to the Mackintosh School of Art for their fantastic support during our whole stay.
