[…] a school designed by children in the Manufacture creative quarter: an experiment in beauty in all its diversity. Design was involved at every stage in the planning and construction of the school overseen by the local urban planning body, the Établissement Public d’Aménagement de Saint-Étienne. This was an unusual and very special experiment conducted with the children who are the school’s future occupants. Until now very few projects have involved their future users as much as this. Designer Sara de Gouy’s work released the children’s imaginations and helped them to construct their representation of the space. Use of the spaces, design of the signage and furniture were the fruits of the children’s and the teachers’ involvement in this project.
