Learning Towns: Innovative Whole School Exemplars – Big Spaces in Schools (DEGW)

Add to Scrapbook

As part of a ‘Whole School Exemplars’ project involving 5 architects and designers with different styles and skill bases, this piece of work was commissioned to develop ideas from an earlier initiative by The Lighthouse, Senses of Place.

As one of five individual pieces of work, this particular report looked at ‘Big Spaces’ and how they can form part of a flexible, spatial framework through which the objectives and principles of the curriculum can be developed. It was developed by DEGW.

Developing Whole Town Models – Journeys of Discovery (DEGW)

Following on from the ‘Whole School Exemplars’ report series, the 5 architects involved in this project were asked to develop their concepts into ‘Whole Town Models’ – a range of feasible architectural concepts based on a real case study in an ‘urban’ context. DEGW have looked at the opportunities of putting learning on the map. By looking at the physical journey, and the many opportunities for pathways to learning, they have explored the idea of creating hubs, distributed across a whole townscape. For more information see the report and video.
