CLASSROOM OF THE FUTURE - MOSSBROOK SCHOOL, SHEFFIELD Sarah Wigglesworth Architects Client: Sheffield Education Directorate This is a school for special-needs children, mostly autistic, and while the building was clearly designed around their needs, it remains adaptable. It deploys an interesting range of robust materials in an imaginative way, to create a positive and pleasant atmosphere in terms of its appearance as well as its use of light, sound, smell and touch.
LONGLEY PARK SIXTH FORM COLLEGE, SHEFFIELD Ellis Williams Architects Client: Longley Park Sixth Form College This project in a disadvantaged area of Sheffield is characterised externally by its use of reddish lignum panels and dark bricks, which appear quite austere, but nevertheless have a warmth to them.
It succeeds in providing an interesting range of spaces within a seemingly uniform set of volumes, generating a dynamic atmosphere for learning.
