An architect teaches a GCSE geography class about design Gillian Horn is a celebrated architect, whose school and hospital designs break away from traditional ideas of form and function. She’s a partner in the London based firm Penoyre and Prasad, which is involved with designing schools in the UK.
In this programme, we challenge her to teach a GCSE geography class at Lillian Baylis School in south London about the relevance of design to their environment. Can she manage to persuade them that everything around them – from basketball trainers to hospitals – can have fun and wit incorporated into their design? And what does geography teacher Sian Kennedy think of her performance?
