CAMPUSES and URBAN DESIGN
The urban and environmental dimension is the place where all architectural thinking must begin. Buildings are inevitably part of a context, both with respect to other buildings and to nature. The noblest thing any building can do is form part of a grouping of other buildings, in harmony with the natural world.
David Mayernik's work for the TASIS schools in Switzerland and England has been recognized for its elegant, sensitive response to its historical, cultural, and natural context. The schools are urban environments, villages where students live and study and learn to be citizens—of the school community, but also citizens of the world.
