Centre of Architectural Research for Education. Elderly, Environment and Excellence Ltd., in supporting Department of Architecture, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, develops an interactive document 'Innovative School Design Parameters in Hong Kong for 21st Century'.
The key objective of this design parameter aims to provide school sponsoring bodies/ principals and their colleagues in undertaking future school building design or alterations in Hong Kong, in line with the latest development in education reform, community aspirations and international standards. This document is to be read with the advice from the design consultants. This interactive document may be conceived as a design checklist sourcebook document, and contains a comprehensive list of fundamental issues and design case studies to achieve school design for quality education. Users may select up to a certain percentage of the total parameters in accordance with their own education goals, and specific designs may be evaluated for fulfillment of the objectives. It is interactive in the sense that schools and designers may freely choose the parameters which they consider important and essential to them, and develop/ incorporate into their own designs.
