|Discussion||Munkegaards School Commentary
"Munkegaards School is an elementary school for children from 7 to 15 years of age. It comprises 24 standard classrooms of the pavilion type, which are arranged in pairs and open up towards small patios. All the classroom pavilions are connected by a simple system of parallel corridors which also give access to the assembly hall and teachers' room. A two-storey wing on the North side accommodates the special classrooms. Gymnasia, bicycle sheds and dwellings are separate buildings. The yellow brickwork, white-painted timber and aluminium roofs contribute to the intimate and friendly atmosphere of the school."
