The Architect

Description

Gillian Horn is a celebrated architect, whose school and hospital designs break away from traditional ideas of form and function.

This programme challenges her to teach a GCSE geography class at Lillian Baylis School in south London about the relevance of design in their environment.

Gillian's task is to persuade the students that everything around them, from basketball trainers to hospitals can be utilised and incorporated into their design. Gillian a partner in the London based firm Penoyre and Prasad, explains her involvement in designing schools in the UK.

Afterwards geography Teacher Sian Kennedy discusses with Gillian about what she thinks of her performance with her students.
