The Design Matters? project on which this book is based produced the most accurate picture ever of the effects of school design on the practice and experience of school, from perspectives of teachers, students and parents. This book reviews its fascinating conclusions and shows how school design does not simply cause outcomes, but offers opportunities for, and constraints on, practices. It highlights the degree to which good school design can influence expectations and philosophies of school leaders, and how continuity of vision from design-to-build- to-occupation may produce more harmonious outcomes. This is a vital contribution to the debates about school design on a number of levels.
