Altona P-9 College
The redevelopment of the Altona P-9 College was a 5 year process, resulting in architecture that is relevant to the progressive educational aims of the college, and expressive of sustainability and strong community-building.
The college is organised around ‘living and learning communities’, where each community is an integral self contained facility. Multi-modal open-plan learning spaces were developed in response to the school’s requirements.
The architecture moves from conventional ‘teacher centered’ teaching modes to a ‘student centered’ learning, helping build collaborative teaching with a project-based curriculum.
