Chosen to exemplify 21st-century school architecture throughout the United States, plus one Canadian province, the 43 new or renovated schools presented here show new directions in design. As architect Raymond Bordwell points out in his introduction, schools have evolved from knowledge factories into learning environments, incorporating new information technology and concerns about physical security. The featured schools are diverse in purpose, size, context, and design. Many have formal community recreational as well as educational functions. An architect and editor of Faith & Form magazine, Crosbie (Generating Context) profiles each school with a short description, plan drawing, and quality color photographs. Though the text contains several errors, and the sans serif font is fatiguing to read, the book offers a stimulating glimpse at the latest school design trends. Recommended for all libraries with an interest in school design. David R. Conn, Surrey P.L., BC
