FINNISH SCHOOL MODEL , RIYADH

The new school in Riyadh based on a Finnish concept will be designed as an impressive public building to be constructed in Anas Bin Maluk street.

The new type of school building is designed to implement the Finnish philosophy of education: the garden-like yards of various sizes of both the girls’ and boys’ schools redefine the large edifice by reducing its scale to manageable proportions. The yards shaded by extensive covered areas and verdant stands of trees will serve as entrance and outdoor recreation areas. With their pleasant micro-climate and vegetation, the gardens act as protective zones outside the classrooms.
