Connecting Spaces

 

MArch Studio: Construction Material Technology

 

Michelle Howard | Christina Condak

This semester we will be designing a school in a very particular way, rather than starting with a classroom module, we will be concentrating on the spaces connecting classrooms and other so-called usable spaces. We can prove how necessary this connecting social environment is, and destined to be in the future, as physical and tangible interaction in the world succumbs to keyboard communication.

Most of us have very strong memories of our school days, many of them outside or between the classroom environments, some could say, outside the learning environments. Learning is not institutional! Learning does not just take place in prescribed places at prescribed times from prescribed persons but also in the in-between places and through discussions and encounters with others.

Connecting spaces provide buffer zones which have great potential not only on a social level but also on the level of energy planning and sustainability. They can provide for different pedagogical and energetic climates and regulate those of adjoining spaces. The freedom of movement of students, of air and light, within these spaces and their possible benefits socially and energetically will be investigated in this studio.
