04jun6:00 pm8:00 pmRound Table Discussion - Schools in Dense City AreasMontreal, Quebec


Event Details

Canada’s downtown areas have gone from being almost exclusively commercial and professional districts to becoming more and more places to live. Yet there are few elementary schools, which are essential to inclusive urban development. And for good reason: the traditional model of the single-purpose, low-rise school building, with its vast ground-level playground, is at odds with a high-density, high-value environment. The heart of metropolises attracts developers, all the more so as urban planning regulations allow them to erect high-rise buildings, a source of significant revenue. So what kind of school architecture can we imagine for our city centers? And what might it offer school children?
