Abstract
The study entails the design of a public school in the Pretoria inner city that will serve the needs of a growing number of residents in the area.

Influences that shaped the design include the school’s connection with the urban context, needs set by the current educational system and a commitment to sustainable development.

A mutualistic relationship between school and city is created. The inner city serves as an energetic and sustaining growth medium for the school. The school becomes a beacon of education for the urban community. Architecture creates the opportunity for a positive flow of information and inspiration between school and city. Functions of the school and city blend. Boundaries between the two become blurred.

Architecture becomes flexible. Urban or educational needs can lead to a re-shaping of the building’s function or internal organisation. A temporary stability is provided.

Architecture makes the user aware of is or her place in the physical and social context of the environment, just as the user makes the architecture aware of its place.
