Projects added to IASB’s school design resource

Twenty-six projects have been added to IASB’s School Design Data File, a searchable database that includes information on design entries to the yearly Exhibition of Educational Environments (EEE) over the past 26 years.

Each year, design professionals are invited to submit entries to the juried EEE, and to display their projects at Conference. Afterward, entries become part of the School Design Data File, a service developed by IASB for its Service Associates organization and available for use by IASB member school districts and their architectural firms.

The database is available to provide school officials and their architects with a place to look for ideas and insights into the current "state of the art." Information provided by the designing architect for each project is searchable on a wide range of variables. This database contains entry form data, illustrations, and commentary.

After identifying projects that meet their criteria, requesters can contact IASB to receive a complete data report for each identified project.

The School Design Data File is part of the IASB Resource Center, which contains more than 3,000 books, nearly 500 serial titles, and several special collections. One of these special collections is the School Design Data File.
