It's that time of year again.
Since a new school year is upon us, it seems rather appropriate that today's post should take another look at some of the academic institutions featured on claass HAUS over the last couple of years. School buildings have always been of particular interest to me, so I've covered quite a few primary schools, college libraries, even a (now defunct) educational experiment in the mountains.
Here are some favorites.
10 things: crow island school
It is the school that pretty much changed everything. And class is still in session after eight decades. Read more about the Crow Island School here.
the greenbelt center elementary school
A moderne school in the heart of a New Deal demonstration town. Not something you see everyday. Find out more here.
midMOD monday: ncsu student bookstore
Sadly, this building is no longer with us. Find out why.
midMOD monday: more minoru yamasaki
Quintessential work by Minoru Yamasaki. Read it here.
columbus countdown #5: the l. frances elementary school
I know you've probably read this one, but I love John Johansen's work. And this school is (in my humble opinion, anyway) one of his best. The school still seems kind of crazy (in the best possible way). Read about my visit.
I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer (or the new school year). Thanks for reading.

This architectural historian cannot stop thinking about buildings, food, and that vintage rug she found online.
