From a child’s perspective, schools being standardised nationally is irrelevant
Architects seem very upset at the idea of standardised design (12 October, page 29).
If you look at it from a national perspective they have a point as no one wants homogenised architecture. If, however, you look at it from a child’s perspective the only thing that matters is their school. The national perspective is irrelevant. So the only conclusion is standardised design is a good thing as, after all, the end user is the child.
