School Architecture

As we were wandering all over town in our first week here, looking for a high school for Emma, we saw lots of different schools. At least in the urban core, it’s noticeable that many of them (still) are housed in buildings that have a touch of imperialism, i.e. having been constructed in the late 19th/early 20th century.

In town, some of the schools are thus flush with neighbouring buildings and their facades, others are set back slightly, and yet a different model is of a larger area that is occupied by multiple schools, perhaps an elementary and high school.

Here’s a school one of us sees everyday.

This is a school we walk by on the way to Em’s school.


And a little bit of the facade of Em’s school.


There would be a ton more of examples of these kind of buildings, but while I took some photos early in the year, I didn’t really continue the series, so a somewhat abbreviated photo post here…
