content SchoolParasites are temporary pavilions for schools, attached like 'parasites' onto the permanent school and set down in a surplus location (para-site). Many schools have to contend with the tension between an inflexible building and constantly changing requirements for use. WiMBY! commissioned three designers to develop SchoolParasites, provisional structures, flexible in application and striking in design, as an attractive alternative to the usual trailer-type provisional classrooms. This book documents the designs. design The[i] ‘basic WiMBY! pallet’ [/i] is implemented in this case as a user manual. Utilising drawings, situations are sketched in which it becomes clear why the temporary school extensions are necessary. The 'sample-card', made for the designed parasites, offers an overview of the functions that the parasites can serve. In this way, the parasites can easily be compared. A series of ground plans for the schools illustrate the change in use over time. In this manner, the historical transformation of the schools is clearly illustrated. A selection of pages is shown.
