We're noticing more examples of design making a difference in educational facilities. Here are three recent projects that have used interesting architecture and design to inspire and facilitate learning.
Copenhagen, Denmark has seen remarkable growth in teens living in the city and the current number of educational facilities couldn't keep up. The Municipality of Copenhagen needed a new college and looked to 3XN Architects to design the new building. The architects created a dynamic interior plan based on four boomerang shaped balconies Each balcony contains a study zone that can be adjusted to create different spaces, and learning environments that can fit different group sizes. The ground floor contains several elevated lounge areas complete with giant beanbag chairs that create a comfortable place to study….or maybe nap.
