Zaha Hadid's New School in London (10 pics + video)

World renowned artist Zaha Hadid recently completed a school in Brixton, south London that features a bright red running track that flows right through it. Designed for ARK Education, the Evelyn Grace Academy is organized into four smaller schools that share outdoor spaces and facilities.

The Academy offers a learning environment that engages students actively. Playgrounds and sports pitches surround the building, while oblique lines stride across the elevations of the structure, veering into curves around the corners.

The structure allows maximum levels of natural light and ventilation to enter. This collective space, shared by all the schools, encourages social communication and interaction.
