School of Designers - A contribution to the system of education
In this text, we evaluate options for implementation of several innovative concepts in a design of a new building of school as future education space. The Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering in Banja Luka will be used as an example. The school is treated as a model for creative activities in a multicultural space of urban architecture and education system. In that way we are opening an issue of creating space which is aesthetically more valuable, historically and culturally more important, but functionally adapted to the users. The emphasis is being placed on: an integral reuse of an old building and its transformation into contemporary space for education; the way how to make an energy efficient (passive, energy-plus) building with a minimum of CO2 emission, which enabled erecting such a building and creating a new energy supply that would be independent from fossil fuel consumption. The use of blue and green technology (rainwater harvesting and recycling, rain gardens enhanced evaporation etc.) is also planned to be implemented. This model will then be proposed to be used throughout Republic of Srpska since it is seen as a great chance for this part of Europe. The building is proposed to be monitored and the results of monitoring to be used in research which is hoped to confirm and enhance an innovative model. A thoughtful concept of a new building is an active contribution to the education of a modern architect, because it creates a pleasant, sensual, stimulating and healthy place which attracts and motivates students. By creating conditions for students to happily spend their time while staying and studying at school, we inspire them for creative work and ‘higher level’ observation.
Excerpt from the Abstract
The new faculty building is a test labaratory of knowledge for creators. It is a place for experience exchange in theory and practice through lifelong learning. New advanced techniques and technology are embedded in this building as an exibition space for students and scientific and professional public throughout the whole year.
