An exceptional piece of architecture by the celebrated architect Zaha Hadid, this building has been designed to incorporate 'four small schools within a school’. With playgrounds and sports pitches occupying the spaces between the building and surrounding streets, the Academy has oblique geometry and curved corners creating a sophisticated, artistic and stately form. The external envelope is a challenging mixture of glazed curtain wall and aluminium rainscreen with distinctive aluminium banding between each of the schools.
