“Lined with timber, the space acts as a social condenser for all of the school’s 3,000 students, who, buzzing back and forth beneath the wood-and-glass coffered ceiling, unconsciously enact MSD’s pedagogical model […]

At MSD, the horizontal datum of the studio is transposed vertically and arrayed along the thickened corridors ringing the atrium. These are free work zones that carry studio activity upward, carved-out spaces for spontaneous encounters and rapid-fire collaborative sessions. They are kitted out with ‘hot desks’ that jostle their way over the lip of the floor plate and are held in place by a thin, liminal mesh and shiny folded stainless-steel railings that just say ‘zoom’.”
