Schools designed to fight kids’ obesity

Posted 11 March 2015 12:00 AM by Evan Bane

A fascinating article in a recent edition of Architectural Products magazine discusses new approaches to enlist school design in the fight against childhood obesity.  “Schools have become the focal point for health and health issues – there’ national recognition today that schools can lead the way,” says Diana Sorenson of VDMO Architects in Charlottesville, Va.
Several showcase projects are featured, including an elementary school in Virginia that features a teaching kitchen, a food lab, a dehydrating food composter and outdoor student gardens.
The article begins on p. 46 of the Jan.-Feb. 2015 issue of Architectural Products.
