Principles of Primary School Design - Book Launch

‘Principles of Primary School Design’ - Book/film launch
Towards a common vocabulary of practice - Looking back to imagine the future

14th October 2010, 18:00- 19:30, Room GS5, Donald McIntyre Building, 184 Faculty of Education, Cambridge.

The publication to be launched at this event is a unique booklet, with a DVD of corresponding films, which explores the architectural principles used in the past design of primary schools and how these methods can be used today. Much of what the book explores relates to the late ACE trustee and respected architect and friend: David Medd OBE (1917-2009). The publication presents an argument for the vitally important relationship that should exist between educators and architects.

Attingham Scholar 2010

Tiina-Mall Kreem, Curator of the Department of Sculpture at Kadriorg Art Museum in Estonia recently finished her placement on the Attingham Trust Summer School. A placement funded by the ACE Foundation. As ever with this scholarship, she was extremely complimentary of the hospitality and the excellence of the experience provided by the Attingham Trust. She confirmed that her experinces over the three weeks have given her invaluable insights that relate to both her personal development but also her work at the musueum back in Estonia, in particular her report mentioned how the school clarified the work she is doing towards two exhibitions: “Wine and bread” (Museum of Estonian Art in 2011) and “Artist and Clio. Historical painting in the 19th century” (Kadriorg Art Museum in 2014).
