dc.description.abstract Increasing environmental, social and inancial concerns have situated designers under pressure to evolve design and construction methodologies within the building industry. Nowhere is this more demanding than in the design and development of New Zealand primary schools. Fluctuating enrolment numbers, aging buildings, poor learning environments, evolving teaching and learning techniques and rapid advancements in technology are the driving forces behind this body of research. A new form of classroom design and construction which can satisfy the environmental, social and economic imperatives of sustainable development is the focus of this thesis, where the research focuses upon: How can I design an adaptable and relocatable primary school classroom system which responds to the constantly evolving needs of the 21st century modern learning environment? This research aim has been achieved through a strategy of design for disassembly (DFD) to create a flexible design solution which aims to improve the teaching and learning conditions in the classroom, as well as provide the ability to accommodate change, In particular, this body of research develops a classroom system which prioritizes maintainability, adaptability, relocatability, architectural distinction and internal environmental performance in response to the requirements of the modern learning environment (MLE). en_NZ
