1972 Flynn Primary School

1972 Flynn school

This school intended to be an "anti-machine" four-dimensional envelope. Advantages were taken of the sloping site to plan the building in a series of steps from the central entrance. The library, the assembly hole, the canteen and craft rooms create the centre of gravity of the architecture. The school adopts an education method not dictated by age but by stage-of-learning capability and the building has semi-open planned class areas each with four teacher's units.
