contributed by Wing-Ni

In the 1980s, Hertzberger designed the Apollo School, a combination of two different schools with two different educational systems. He organized all the classrooms around an internal space, an amphitheatre-like organization that has been wholeheartedly emulated since. There are smaller corridors and blocked-out areas that allow students to work outside the classrooms. The 1990s were a time of shrinking budgets for school construction in the Netherlands, said Hertzberger. To stretch the money, he spent it on creating cohesive organization. This tactic was also a response to the wave of immigration: by organizing space well, students of all languages and levels of understanding could feel comfortable.
