10 Breathtakingly Beautiful Art School Campuses


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.
