Vertical Schools

Last decade marked a watershed in human history as, for the first time ever, more people lived in urban than in rural areas. That one per cent that tipped the scales is also indicative of rapid urbanisation in underdeveloped countries, as well as the urban conglomerates of the West becoming more crowded. Infrastructural problems faced by overcrowded cities affect the everyday lives of citizens, and recently, have started to complicate the already complex situation in educational infrastructure. There is simply no more room in most cities to expand existing schools, let alone build new ones. Or rather, there is no more room for the traditional, horizontal school model that we are so used to. The solution is going vertical, but vertical schools are not just about stacking classrooms on top of each other. Far from being just a physical, architectural reimagining, vertical schools aim to modify the way we do education in cities overall.
