Herman Hertzberger: Montessori School in Delft, Holland

This small school building is very interesting because it shows that structures do not necessarily have to be determined by outside walls. It was built with the idea that it would always be in a state of perpetual incompleteness. This allows for the addition of more rooms as the need arises. Each room in the structure is a simple “L-shape” that each essentially function as a “house along a street.” I find this to be a brilliant idea of saving money and making an interesting learning environment by creating different “zones” in a classroom.
