Designing for Education: Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities 2011 showcases over 60 recently built or refurbished educational facilities from 28 countries. Collectively, these projects demonstrate state-of-the-art design in this field and each one is lavishly illustrated with colour photos, plans and descriptions.

The individual chapters – which are in higher resolution format – are available on the OECD iLibrary.




Centre for Effective Learning Environments

Education facilities are the theatre, the stage and the backdrop for learning at all levels from pre-primary to higher education and beyond. Educators everywhere are encouraging their students to explore more individualised learning and active engagement with learning within, and beyond, the classroom. As our approaches to teaching and learning evolve, so too must our learning environments.
