With an exterior paint job resembling a glitched-out computer monitor and an inside with enough neon green to rival the wackiest of Karim Rashid-designed spaces, this primary school in Melbourne could hardy be more upfront about its commitment to keeping things light and breezy. The Dallas Brooks Community Primary School isn’t Australian firm McBride Charles Ryan‘s first attempt at giving the kids a break from school-day doldrums with colorful stripes and spiky silhouettes, though with this one, the request for a bright color scheme came at the community level. As the firm tells it, the overall approach was to “construct an atmosphere that facilitates a fluid and rich journey through the early years of early academic life.” All it needs is a slide coming out the back and we’re in business!
