WOODLAND COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL, ROCHDALE BY NPS ARCHITECTS

FAT SHED WITH TINY WINDOWS. THAT'S WHAT WE SHOULD EDUCATE THE VERY YOUNG IN THESE DAYS. IF IT FAILS AS A SCHOOL, YOU CAN ALWAYS TURN IT INTO A FUCKING DISTRIBUTION SHED. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN, LIKE NPS, YOU HAVE A BOARD OF DIRECTORS WHO LOOK LIKE NEWS OF THE WORLD PAEDOPHILES.

  1. Jeez that's scary. (They are scary too.) Looks like a battery chicken shed. And I wouldn't be surprised if a rather handsome and soundly built trad school was demolished so that this could be built.

  3. It would make a good headquarters for a millenarian cult: easily defended, with small windows and good sight-lines.

  4. That's it! It looks exactly like a Koresh HQ, doesn't it? Thanks for that, Paul - I might shamelessly steal that joke some other time. I know there are more schools that look like this out there.

  5. You are most welcome. It is curious how primary schools were once such open places, but now are built like fortresses. I suppose it reflects the increasing privatisation and exclusiveness of the school system, as well as the fear of strangers - paedophiles and mass murderers.
