Abstract

There are few simpler, happier briefs for an architect than the bunch of sunny classrooms, gathering places and playgrounds that make a good primary school. But, times being what they are, state schools' happy simplicities tend to come sorely burdened by a mess of politics and policies, advice and advisors. And given that the new Niddrie Mill and St Francis Primary Schools are set within the comprehensive regeneration of a failed city neighbourhood - Edinburgh's Craigmillar is one of Scotland's six Pathfinder regeneration areas - its context is further complicated by the politics and policies of regeneration.
