Uber-Cool High School


Fitzroy High School in Melbourne, Australia would be a sweet place to go to school if you're into creative architecture and having your meeting-space reflect your philosophy.
The school’s philosophy of innovation in education is reflected in the striking new building that connects with a cluster of older school buildings, some more than 100 years old. The new building’s exterior walls are deliciously wavy and painted in stripes of secondary colors, all of which helps the building both blend in and stand out. Inside, the studio spaces had to remain extremely flexible and their configurations had to be easy to change by staff. The solution is deceptively simple: Bright-colored drapes and splashes of color that define a space.
A good reminder of how environments communicate.
