The architecture of educational space

Over at GOOD, photographer Lissa Rivera has a slideshow of ethereal, diorama-like portraits of Massachusetts’ “public and private schools, universities, Greek societies, and community colleges, focusing on the interiors of buildings themselves rather than the students.”

Rivera notes,

In some of the private schools there’s this sort of constructed sense of history or expectation, with all those portraits watching over the students.
