A Sense of Entry: Designing the Welcoming School

Images Publishing

Alan Ford and Paul Hutton

  • Attending school, particularly in the early years of a chiild's development, can be a daunting experience. In this book, the writers have illustrated how the school can welcome students rather than intimidate them. Exploring more than 25 unique design solutions by Denver-based Hutton Ford, this book is a visual celebration and analysis of the role of entrances in school architecture.

    Entrances serve many purposes. From defining the character of the architecture to the more practical aspects of transitioning from outside to the inside, they momentarily protect us from inclement weather as we launch between exterior and interior, like an environmental buffer to mitigate temperature changes, even allowing our vision to adjust to light changes.In this book, Hutton Ford illustrates the important role that successful entrance plays in identity, movement and procession of people.
