Abstract:This paper considers the role of building design in shaping the social structures of an advanced industrial society. Drawing upon concepts derived from sociology (structuration) and economics (human capital), and critically evaluating scholarship relating to the architecture of English school design, I try to demonstrate that social architecture is not simply an outcome of changes to economic institutions, but it is also the spatial medium through which these institutions gain political legitimacy over time. Adapting theories from David Harvey, Anthony Giddens and Frank Duffy, I test this framework through an architectural analysis of a pair of school buildings completed in the most current building programme - Bristol Brunei Academy and Westminster Academy. I draw attention to the fact that these new buildings show signs of transformation, towards a knowledge economy system of education that employs the 'city as school', and regression, towards older educational practices (grammar schools) and modem corporate typologies ('atriums' and 'streets'). This tension is I believe instructive as it highlights a set of political choices about the spatial form the commodification of labour time is now taking. However I suggest that the separation of economic from political issues, that the education system reproduces, make the choices this period of change presents difficult to take advantage of in terms of wider social participation in defining the conditions that underpin the everyday life of industrial societies.
