There are certain creative undertakings in which form should never be too far removed from content. Art school campuses fall into this category. It’s difficult to imagine a worthwhile art school curriculum that isn’t reflected in a nurturing creative environment. Things Magazine recently shared a lovely example of the art of art school design, Revolution of Forms, Cuba’s Forgotten Art Schools, a retrospective look at Cuba’s once-extensive creative educational program. Inspired by those images, we’ve put together a gallery of some other beautiful campuses, from design school and beyond — we’re jealous of the lucky students that get to study in these unique and imaginative buildings.
