874. Altstadter Schule, Celle


Dear Simon,

Back in the twenties the new Functionalist Architecture 

embraced all kind of new building types. New types of 
schools such as the "pavilion" schools developed by 
Ernst May or the "hall" schools proposed by Otto Haesler,
are just some examples of those highly creative times. In 

the "hall" school of Celle built in 1927, all the classrooms 
and offices are grouped around a covered central area 
that serves as gymnasium and assembly hall.

Best.
