Recently honored by American School and University Magazine for its innovative design, the Art and Science Center at The British International School of New York at Waterside Plaza, New York was designed by Landow and Landow Architects. Led by partners Robin Landow Levitin AIA, LEED AP and Marc J. Landow AIA, NCARB this project highlights the firm's educational philosophy that creative architecture strongly influences the learning experience, both for students and teachers alike. The mission of the British International School of New York is to provide the best of a British and international education. Relying upon inquiry-based methods, the School seeks to develop life-long learners who demonstrate critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. The School shares a curriculum with its sister school, the Abercorn School, which has over 400 students on four central London campuses and is rated by The London Times as one of the top schools in the UK. Abigail Greystoke, Director of The British International School, described the new Art and Science Center, which also houses general classrooms and support facilities, as "an impressive combination of aesthetics and functionality" and praised Landow and Landow for their creativity and dedication in helping the School to achieve its goals for the project.
