Seven Finnish Examples from the 21st Century
Order from: Museum of Finnish Architecture Bookshop
Finnish students are top performers in the OECD’s PISA studies, but what’s the secret to the success of the Finnish education system? The book explores this question from an architectural perspective: In what type of environments does learning take place today and how contemporary school architecture addresses the varied needs of today’s learners and multiform teaching methods.
The catalogue of the MFA exhibition The Best School in the World is designed especially for international audiences. Featuring a rich accompaniment of visual material it includes a detailed presentation of seven Finnish schools built in the 21st century and three expert essays.
