My school

Built in 1899, my school lies in the outskirts of my city. It's a missionary school, and the land is vast. Therefore, ample space and attention has been allotted to each part of the building. My school's divided into three parts--the junior section, the main building, and the senior section. The classes are spacious, airy and have good lighting. And thanks to the groundskeeper, the gardens and the stadium remains impeccable.

My school design

My school was designed for a rural area, having standard areas for classrooms and other activity spaces. Because of cross ventilation, classrooms have a fresh environment design that is basically close to the nature.

My Beautiful School

University of Toronto's St. George Campus downtown is both beautiful and diverse. Its earliest buildings date from the 1830s and others were added just in the past 5 years. The newest ones were designed to fit into their urban environment while the oldest shaped the environment, and the city, around them. U of T's central zone, King's College Circle, is an immense space that is used for many purposes, from barbecues to soccer and football games, to the graduation parade every spring. The Robarts Library, the chief research repository of the campus, is northwest of King's College Circle. It commands fabulous views of the city from all sides, and its spartan architecture has earned it the nickname, "Fort Book". A historic home, Burwash House, is part of the campus of Victoria College of U of T. Tucked in behind Ontario Government buildings, it is a stunning red limestone mansion. All these architectural styles contribute to the beauty of the University of Toronto.

My school design

My school was designed based on space available. The classroom is not spacious enough to accommodate students. The hostel is built close to classroom, set back about 12 meters.
