Sinarmas World Academy – Indonesia
The idea of the school grew from a vision of Indah Wijaya who understands that education has long been recognized as the key to improving life – both for individuals, families and society. We all seek to provide the best education that we can. In today’s rapidly changing world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to know exactly what sort of education is needed to prepare our children for a world where many of the industries or jobs they will work in do not yet exist. This requires specific skills and attitudes that are not part of many contemporary school curriculums. John Dewey captured this thought in his quote “If we teach our children as we did yesterday, we rob them of the future.”
Douglas Park School – Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
Douglas Park School is one of four new Canadian schools crafted to nurture Creative Age learners and support Regina Public School’s Structural Innovation initiative. FNI served as Planner and Design Architect, and the firm Number Ten served as Executive Architect for this school that accommodates 400 students, ranging from pre-kindergarten through grade 8. The facility includes a Developmental Centre, designed to help students with special needs integrate more fluidly with the rest of the student population. The design also contains site considerations for possible expansion to the east and west for a future daycare centre, as well as the potential for increased learning space should the population grow beyond the Ministry’s projections.
From the beginning, administrators, teachers, parents, students and community input has been essential to the design process. To kick off the project, FNI held an interactive presentation that shared best practice models and FNI projects from around the world that illustrate key features and design principles for 21st century learning environments. This laid the foundation for the visioning workshops that followed. The new Douglas Park School promises to be a beacon for the community, and an inspiring place for teachers and students to work and learn.
P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School: Elementary Campus – Gainesville, Florida
The P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School is a unique & progressive community on a beautifully wooded site. The school’s prized possession is their Tumblin’ Creek, which is not only the heart of the campus but also a threshold between the primary and secondary campuses. The elementary school will be situated alongside the creek, taking advantage of the views and the shade from the existing, mature trees. The main drop-off point will be at the north side of the campus, students will then descend down ramps and stairs, following the site’s topography, to the main entrance that is at the center of the school. The double-height main entrance commons is open & welcoming, connecting all three of the Small Learning Communities: Kindergarten & 1st Grade (ground level west wing), 2nd & 3rd Grades (ground level east wing), and 4th & 5th Grades (second level). The focus of the school’s design is to be respectful to the beautiful site that it sits on and to strive towards the highest environmental sustainable standards.
Scotch Oakburn College, Middle School – Launceston, Tasmania
The largest of Scotch Oakburn College’s three major building projects since 2005 is a new Middle School for years 6, 7 and 8.
Middle-years education has been a focus for Scotch Oakburn College for several years and this building is a physical
representation of the school’s philosophy on education for students in this age group (11-14).
Medford Elementary Schools – Medford, Oregon
Four aging elementary schools in Medford, Oregon were re-built to adapt to the demands of a studentcentered creative age. Roosevelt and Jackson Elementary Schools are featured here. The schools each accommodate approximately 428 students in 57,000 SF. FNI served as the planner and design consultant in 2007. Construction was completed in January, 2010.
Anne Frank Inspire Academy – San Antonio, Texas
Appropriately named, Inspire Academies is a whole new kind of Charter school whose vision is best described by founding Superintendent Bruce Rockstroh. In his own words, “I am more committed than ever to build and design the exemplary 21st century school that will become a model for learning around the world.
Paul Goldberger recently affirmed that ‘the place where people meet to seek the highest is holy ground’ and the Anne Frank Inspire Academy will become that place: a ‘Learning Building’ and community that will celebrate human aspiration and greatness.
The Anne Frank Inspire Academy is a Middle School that will open in 2013. It will feature a completely retooled education system supported by a state-of-the-art building and campus based on research and best international practice. It will be the first of over 100 schools to be developed by Inspire Academies. FNI is honored to serve as this Charter District’s Master Planner, Design Architect and Educational Consultant.
International School of Brussels – Brussels, Belgium
Pre-K-12th Grade IB School in Brussels, Belgium for 1400 students
The new campus plan builds on the celebrated traditions of ISB (one of the top IB schools in the world), while adding a new central green that unifies older buildings, new state-of-the art facilities, and the forest.
Located on the opposite side of the Central Learning Quad from the 19th century Chateau, a new Visual and Performing Arts and Innovation Center will set off creative sparks between the solid symmetry of the Chateau and the dynamic movement of the new buildings. Fronting the Quad, a new center for life-long fitness will solidify ISB as one of the top schools athletic centers globally.
International School of Brussels Pilot High School – Brussels, Belgium
The pilot High School is a temporary High School housed in an industrial three story 1960’s building and an annex. Teachers and students will have the opportunity to use this new space as a testing grounds for the Common Ground Curriculum for two years before they move into the New High School.
The remodel was designed with evolution in mind. Interior walls can be easily removed if the school wants to start using the Commons even more to support multiple learning modalities. When the Elementary School is demolished to begin new construction, walls can be opened up even more and the building can continue to serve as a testing grounds.
American School of Bombay: Primary – Mumbai, India
FNI was selected as the Planning and Education Consultant and Design Architect for American School of Bombay’s (ASB) new Elementary School and for the renovation of their existing campus in the Bandra Kurla district. ASB is one of India’s leading educational institutions in the country and caters to a diverse international student body.
ASB’s existing campus was bursting at the seams with a long waiting list, so they purchased an 80,000 square foot, six story tower in the Kohinoor Township to house the Elementary School. Working closely with the school stakeholders FNI created a world class environment for elementary school students. Instead of classrooms with four walls, “home pods” made of two moveable walls of cabinets on casters created agile and adaptable spaces for learning. There are commons areas, cafes, outdoor learning terraces and satellite libraries on every floor.
Lord Kitchener Elementary School – Vancouver BC, Canada
Lord Kitchener School is one of three elementary school projects in Vancouver designed by FNI in partnership with local architects, to meet the needs of Creative Age learners. The design responds to global trends in education that demand fluency in the basics of literacy and numeracy, as well as mastery in the new basics, including independent learning, creative collaboration, and emerging technologies. More than five hundred students from early learning to grade seven are accommodated in this facility designed to LEED Gold standards.
Al Batinah International School – Sohar, Oman
Fielding Nair International (FNI) has finished the master plan and is currently developing the design for Al Batinah International School’s expansion from 150 K-12 students in two phases to create an ecologically sustainable yet verdant campus with a village-like feel for 1100 Expatriate and Omani students that prepares them for the challenges of the 21st Century. Their school is a 1:1 ipad school in which learners move seamlessly from one learning modality to another.
The design is a response to the school’s wishes for learning spaces that are flexible enough to be re-purposed from year to year for students at different levels on the path of the continuum of learning. It is also a response to the leadership’s wish to create a campus in which the whole environment is a learning landscape that makes learning real and relevant to students and raises their awareness of today’s environmental issues and how they can make a difference for the future.
Omani & Expatriate Learning Communities are housed in prototype buildings that respond to their different educational needs. Both communities will share the Grade 11-12 building, Da Vinci Arts & Science Center, Amphitheater and all Sports Facilities and play areas.
Hillel School of Tampa – Tampa, Florida
Hillel School of Tampa is a Jewish Day School with a strong commitment to preparing students to become knowledgeable, active members of society.
Over time, as the school’s education began to shift towards a more progressive, student-centered and personalized model, the old buildings in which the school was housed no longer served the needs of teachers and students.
However, in a difficult economy, renovation funds for this small private school were hard to come by. Fielding Nair International’s President Prakash Nair is a parent at the school and volunteered the firm’s design services to Hillel to create a truly world class 21st century learning environment. The images in this presentation show “Before” and “After” pictures showing the transformed intermediate school (2nd thru 5th grades) that was accomplished in record time with a minimal investment of funds.
International School of Vietnam – Hanoi, Vietnam
International School of Vietnam (ISV) will be the first Vietnamese backed International school in the country located in the beautiful Hoang Mai district. This is one reason the design as been shaped to weave Vietnam’s ethos into a 197,000 square foot modern building so that foreign students can enjoy a truly memorable learning experience in a unique environment that awakens their sense of wonder. This school project is a labor of love for Tuan Duc Ltd., a successful real estate development company for the past twenty years that creates sustainable projects. ISV’s 21st Century educational curriculum will be supported by interior and exterior spaces, which have been designed flexibly to allow for the evolution of world-class education. ISV will be lead by Head of School Elizabeth Loadwick who has over thirty years of experience as a teacher and Principal at various IB Schools both in Australia and the Middle East. She holds a Master’s degree in Education specializing in Special Needs education and works with the IB as an authorization visitor.
P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School: Secondary Campus – Gainesville, Florida
The Site Plan for P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School features a multitude a learning opportunities throughout the campus – promoting learning ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. A central Market Place connects the three buildings by providing an area for student enterprising kiosks, a performance tent, cafe seating and areas for casual class meetings. The area is also directly adjacent to the outdoor cafeteria seating at the Global Learning Center. On the northeast side of the Small Learning Communities building, a learning garden and outdoor teaching kitchen provides a excellent opportunity for students to learn by doing. Nearby, a kiosk tells the story about the creek and is outfitted to allow for science experiments, such as water testing. A large deck on the west side of the Small Learning Communities building follows the creek and allows for excellent opportunities for outdoor learning.
Duke School – Durham, North Carolina
The Duke School project represents a rare opportunity to create an educational environment that truly reflects a 21st century personalized learning program. The project has the potential to marry an innovative academic Pre-K-8 program with an inventive educational environment, what we describe as a ‘10/10’ – a ‘10’ in terms of educational philosophy, and a ‘10’ in terms of school design. The strong school culture and continuous involvement of students, teachers and parents is unlike almost any project we’ve been involved with. Schools at their very best are learning communities, and it is our personal vision to offer a planning and design process that nurtures the highest values of that community. It has been, and continues to be, a joy and a privilege to assist Duke School in fulfilling their noble dream of providing the highest quality, and challenging learning environment for their children.

FNI served as the Master Planner and Developed the Concept and Schematic Design for “TJ” in collaboration with BJU Architects.
North Central Shared Facility – Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
The proposed new facility in Regina’s North Central Neighbourhood builds on the vision developed by the community, and will be a “first” for Regina in two important ways:
• the first time such a wide range of community services have come together to build and manage a facility devoted to one urban community; and
• the first time that learning experiences will take place within shared community spaces.
The facility’s tenants will be much more than neighbours – they’ll be working partners in program delivery.
The Regina Trades and Skills Centre – Saskatchewan, Canada
The Regina Trades and Skills Centre (RTSC) was initiated in February 2007 as part of a larger goal of revitalizing Regina’s inner city neighborhood and, through a new approach, to better engage the youth in learning and the labor market. Through project based learning, students encounter “real world” experiences and learn practical trades, technical services and skills that they can use to begin work in their selected field. The facility has been designed with maximum flexibility to support the diversified types of instruction at the school. Its conceptual construction details have also been carefully considered to result in a minimum LEED Silver Standard.
LAS Almaty Project
The ultimate result of the Leysin American School (LAS) Almaty project will be to have created the best school in Kazakhstan with every aspect of the facility exemplifying quality education.
The school will invigorate the community and make a dramatic statement, captivating the attention of all who drive by with both surprise and a monumental presence.
The project, designed by FNI (assisted by MHTN Architects), will propel Kazakhstan into the 21st century, by creating a learning community entirely integrated within the larger community of Almaty, and furnishing it with the latest technologies, while promoting key principles of sustainable development and employing a faculty committed to a 21st century approach to education.
George Town Primary School
The Georgetown design in the Cayman Islands is significant because it is the ultimate confluence of the most forward-thinking
ideas in both education and educational architecture for a primary school.
Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Urban Ventures Community Athletic Center – Minneapolis, Minnesota
The Cristo Rey education model is like no other and has been remarkably successful in its mission. Every
graduating senior at the school’s pioneering Chicago campus was admitted to college — a remarkable achievement when
you consider that many of the school’s students are the first in their families to graduate from high school. Click here for the
60 Minutes Story about this special school.
The Cristo Rey model is built on the concept of providing a top-notch education that is largely funded by
income that the students earn in real white collar corporate jobs in the City. Not only does this model provide a level of
hands-on learning that is unprecedented in most school systems, but it also provides a solid source of financing that the school
can then use to subsidize the students’ education.
The innovation continues in Minneapolis with the new Twin Cities Cristo Rey Jesuit High School
forming a partnership with the Colin Powell Youth Leadership Center. This complex provides students with access to an
extended network of corporate/school internships, arts and civic partnerships on one urban campus.
Porirua College – New Zealand
Porirua College is a small high school with big ambition. Over the next three years, it is set to become a flagship facility for 21st Century Learning in New Zealand. FNI is serving as Educational Facilities Planner along with architects Opus and managers Octa Associates.
Porirua is a region known for its diversity: the community comprises largely Pasifika (Pacific Islanders) and Maori families. It is also a region with high rates of unemployment, low income, and low rates of university (college) attendance.
“Building Futures” Projects – Victoria, Australia
In Australia, the Victorian Government’s Building Futures funding initiative has spawned a number of projects with Fielding Nair International involvement as
Planning and Design Consultant. There has been growing recognition in Victoria that school stock built in the 1950s and 60s has exceeded its useful life and that
reinvestment in school buildings must contribute to a marked improvement in student learning. Altogether, FNi is participating on 8 separate primary and secondary
schools projects in three communities: Broadmeadows, Bendigo and Geelong. In this capacity, FNI is providing visioning and educational planning, developing concept
designs and design effectiveness evaluations, and teacher professional development services. FNI has also begun work with several other Victorian communities on the
Building Futures program.
Scotch Oakburn College – Launceston, Tasmania
Scotch Oakburn College (SOC) was created in 1979 with the amalgamation of Oakburn College and Scotch College. The amalgamation
successfully brought together two fine traditions that stretch back to 1886 and 1901 respectively. The College has a long and
significant connection with the history of the town of Launceston, Tasmania. This project involves a major capital investment
by the College in its Penquite Campus and includes three distinct components: A New Health and Physical Education Center (HPC),
A New Middle School and the refurbishment of the existing gymnasium building at the Robert Dean Center into a new Senior
This project is significant in many ways. It is the first school in Australia to feature FNI’s signature “studios”
– these include the DaVinci Studio, the Einstein Studio and the Julia Child Studio among others. The new HPC and Middle School
are located on a dramatically steep site across the road from the main campus and offers magnificent vistas to the valley and
hills beyond. The design also calls for a complex terracing arrangement. When it is completed, the new campus will firmly
establish SOC as one of the world’s foremost leaders in education and innovation.
Horizons Phuket – Phuket, Thailand
Horizons Phuket, in Phuket, Thailand is not just a better community, it is the way of the future. Instead
of developing the “best of the old”, The Horizons Educational Consulting Company has chosen to develop the “first of the new”.
Instead of the familiar notion of developing “the school as community”, Horizons Phuket stands out as the first notable
development worldwide which builds on the idea of “community as school”. Here, lifelong learning is more than a catchphrase, it
is a philosophy that finds expression in every facet of the development. At Horizons Phuket, learning is everywhere and
learning is for everyone. Every home in the community features a specially designed “Satellite Learning Center” that connects
each and every resident, young and old alike, to a rich variety of learning resources within and outside the community. Each
home is a natural extension of the learning community which contains four distinct components – A Pre-Primary Learning Center,
Primary Years Learning Center, A Middle Years Learning Center and a Senior Learning Center. These are connected to other
community-wide resources which include the Town Center, the Health, Fitness and Music/Performance Center, Enviro-Lake, Nature
Walk and the Green Amphitheater – all shared elements with strong underlying learning themes that everyone gets to use. There
is every expectation that this development will put Phuket on the global map once again – but this time for positive,
Bower’s Academy – Bloomfield Hills School District, Bloomfield Hills, MI
Bowers Academy is an alternative high school, founded for “at risk” students, located on the 90-acre Bower’s School Farm. Originally designed as a separate entity from the farm, the school decided to integrate itself into the farm to create a unique partnership after just one design workshop with FNI. This unique educational environment not only places students close to nature, but also offers a creative space for personal development. Students thrive in this small farm-school, balancing academic challenge with spaces for self-reflection and small class sizes.
Paideia Academy – Apple Valley, Minnesota
Completion : August 2005
The day after the charter for Paideia Academy was granted in February, 2005, they sent out 10,000 postcards
telling the story of their vision to parents and prospective students. They found a building that until recently had housed
five movie theaters, embarked on a thoughtful planning process and negotiated a deal with the landlord. Just a few months
later, in August 2005, the school launched with immediate success. Each day begins with an all-school meeting in the central
atrium, which features a grand piano (the school has a partnership with a prestigious music institution). Already, the school
boasts a healthy waiting list.
Paideia Academy was designed and renovated 3 times faster and cost less than 1/2 the budget of a typical
school. Tona is spending more time dancing again, Erik is singing in the choir, and their children are flourishing like plants
in a greenhouse. Laura Porter-Jones, Director, said “The school is absolutely beautiful – in 15 years I have never been
privileged to work in a facility half as lovely as this one. Thank you!”
