Unique School Architecture Images
A great way to inspire students is by having them learn in a space that bears the mark of genius. Here are images of academic buildings were designed by true architectural scholars.
The Smarties Building at Utrecht University in the Netherlands couldn’t get any sweeter with its exterior that resembles the colorful grid of an 8-bit video game, a winding stairwell at the University of Birmingham in England looks as if it jumped off the page of an M.C. Escher illustration, and the window panes and shutters at MICA in Singapore could have been painted by a savant with OCD.
We say higher education couldn’t be housed any more creatively.
