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

This extension forms the new main entrance of Cork Institute of Technology’s Bishopstown campus. Referencing historic university campuses such as Trinity College Dublin, three new buildings have been built around a circular green. They not only provide an upgraded facility for higher education – one that serves the educational process and inspires learning – but give the campus a distinctive character, gravitas and sense of place.
