ADP is top of the class with 'green' school

Architects Design Partnership (ADP) has submitted for planning this design for a sustainable school in Sevenoaks, Kent. The 270-pupil infants school is conceived as an extension of the green belt in which it sits. The school's low, curved roof will be planted with sedum so that the surrounding pastureland appears to sweep over the building, while the hall and entrance are formally expressed as a blue cube and red triangle which burst through the roof.
