Finnish School: Design for changes
According to the Finnish architects, the author of VFIS grand campus, the first Finnish K-12 school in Southeast Asia, VFIS was designed and built to “adapt to the constant changes of society and the world.” Of course they had no idea about COVID-19 outbreak when they were designing the school, but now, it has turned out to be so effective.
The open space allows to add entries whenever needed, the staircase that can be turned into a waiting area, the removable walls that can be opened to merge the classrooms together, the sink that is placed in each classroom, ect.
The architect of the campus also reflects exactly our first core value, flexibility, something that is so necessary in the future with so much uncertainty. A bunch of thanks for the Finnish architects for this thoughtful design.
