Educational environments – from primary education to universities and from libraries to research labs – need to enable spatial flexibility. The most relevant aspects of the new learning culture:
» experience-based learning
» research and
» design thinking
require individually adaptable learning environments. These spaces should support the dynamically changing needs of students, staff and external experts, and – above all – should evoke curiosity and creativity.
Existing knowledge of how physical space can support and enhance learning and cognitive performance has not been reflected, so there’s a lot of catching up to do.
