PEB Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities, 3rd edition
OECD Observer

Innovative design, use and management of physical infrastructure can contribute to the quality of education. This lesson is not all that new. For a decade now, the OECD Programme on Educational Building (PEB), has led an international jury in selecting a number of institutions that exemplify considerations of flexibility, community needs, sustainability, safety and security, and financing.

In addition to schools and universities in 20 different countries, the latest third edition also covers pre-schools, for a total of 65 examples of studiously photographed innovative schools.
