The design of educational institutions is rarely spotlighted, which is why we felt compelled to do so this issue. A study showed that well-designed classrooms can improve pupil performance by 16 percent. The onus is therefore on architects to advise educators to get the basic physical factors of these spaces right, and provide a conducive environment for learning and development. Elsewhere in Issue 104, we summarise our visit to the Salone del Mobile 2018 in Milan, Italy through an in-depth fair report. Back in Asia, we feature a project in Beijing, China, Courtyard Hybrid, which examines how the city’s famous hutongs can be re-adapted for modern-day use. The same is done for one of Hanoi’s legendary tube houses that has been converted into a flagship store. Also in the spotlight are two abodes – the Window House in Malaysia, and Villa Otto in Singapore – of contrasting styles that provoke and inspire at the same time.
