First Biorhythmic School

Work has started on this £18.5 million school in Monkseaton, North Tyneside, designed by Newcastle- London- and Sedgefield-based practice Dewjo'c.

The building, which is expected to complete in summer 2009, will feature triangular classrooms and has been inspired by the book Rhythms of Life by neuroscientist Russell Foster and Leon Kreitzman, which deals with biorhythms.

According to the book, children are most productive between 1030am and 3pm when their body clocks are in sync with daylight, so the building has been angled to ensure maximum natural ventilation and daylight, helping boost students' learning potential in line with Foster's biorhythm discoveries. Once finished, the school will house 938 students.
