"Bråviksskolan" – School of Braviken, in Norrkoping community, Sweden.
Arkitektgruppen GKAK recently completed project “Bråviksskolan” – School of Braviken, in Norrkoping community, Sweden.
“Bråviksskolan is a building for contemporary schooling, for looking into the future, for different educational models, with a purpose of catering to the needs of our children. Playfulness, aiming to abandon archaic values like order and discipline in favour of improvisation and imaginaton. An ambition is to answer the creative abilities of mankind, whether young or old. Teaching will strive to meet new demands and so must the organisation. Though, the children will always be the same… Bråviksskolan aspires to affirm and assert the creative abilities of mankind, whether young or old. Teaching must strive to meet new demands and so must the educational organisation.”
Bråviksskolan in the Lindö district of Norrköping was completed in August 2009. The school is specifically built for children aged six to twelve, and has partly replaced the former Lindöskolan.
