Student project: Jouberton Nursery School, South Africa


A particular highlight from my visit to the University of Nottingham’s School of the Built Environment summer show were panels relating to Noah’s Ark Nursery School in Jouberton (~ 150km south of Johannesburg. South Africa) designed and built by second year undergraduate students at the school. Professor Michael Stacey, of the University of Nottingham, discusses the school in this week’s BD. My understanding is that the nursery represents the first of a new programme of student projects, and I will be following Nottingham’s progress with interest.
