An innovative new school building designed to help support a sustainable learning environment.  Within the dome-shaped building, a multi-use sports hall is the central feature and leading off this, over two floors, are open-plan communal learning areas and non-square, ceilingless classrooms.  Use of light within the building, including a pioneering light technology installation and a special fresh air ventilation system, help to create better conditions for concentration and learning.
