The international competition challenged invited global architectural firms to design an innovative school in Education City, Doha to be an international benchmark for learning environments for the future.
The School of the Future is a complex, integrated campus accommodating pre-K-12, as well as a dedicated STEM school. The holistic facilities on the campus are intended to address the intellectual, spiritual, physical capabilities of the students.
The school campus is imagined as a series of buildings as learning blocks under a ecological and power generating canopy. The learning spaces will span inside to outside, dissolving old notions of classrooms and removing corridors. The focal point of the campus is the library of the future, and its circular form that is offset from the geometry of the rest of the campus.
Innovative learning strategies complimenting cutting-edge, experimental architecture will allow Qatar School of the Future to achieve learning transformation. The physical environment can support each student’s learning experience. It will also help the school integrate within its remarkable urban context while also standing apart to become one of the nation’s highest achieving school.
