Productive School Design
School designs matters! What would it have been like to spend much of your childhood waking hours in one of the school's featured on this website? Bright, comfortable spaces to learn, play, create, and grow in. Many elementary schools are a brick box with long dark corridors and small windows so students aren't distracted by the world outside - the same world they are preparing to enter but apparently not allowed to see. We have moved through the industrial ages of pedagogy to a more enlightened, holistic, and I dare say, effective understanding of how to educate and prepare our children for a future we can only begin to imagine. Should the school environment not keep pace with this new 21st century thinking?
