Chobham Academy on Civic Trust shortlist

The new all age school in the Olympic site, the Chobham Academy has been shortlisted for the Civic Trust Awards and Commendations, due to be announced at the awards ceremony on 7 March 2014.  KLA designed the external spaces for the school using the theory of a no fence approach to separating ages within the playgrounds.

Over the site a grid of circles is a design device used to play with perceptions of scale, space and shape.
