Yılmaz, Deniz Derya
Tanyer, Ali Murat
As one of the most important items on the agenda of many countries, sustainability necessitates integrating environmental, economic, and social factors into a wide range of areas. Schools can create a unique platform for the sustainability pathway and foster a bridge between theory and practice by harmonizing education and environmentally responsive design. The purpose of the paper is to review the state of art on the application of sustainability in school facilities through the perspective of architects. The reviews also will be presented to analyze the common research trends in sustainable school architecture. Although studies on school architecture in the past put a clear emphasis on the perceptions of different parties including architects, this study shows that it is difficult to see a similar trend when sustainability is at the center.
