Could Better Designed Schools Increase Student’s Performance?
A new study from the UK says an institution's design can impact students grades by up to 25%.
If you went to public school growing up, chances are you heard this urban legend: that in order to save money, the district had used the same floorplan for your alma mater as a nearby mental institution. While windows that barely opened, and oppressive overhead lighting all hinted that this wasn’t outside of the realm of possibility, the truth is many school planners simply were looking for function over form, and aesthetic pleasure is usually not at the forefront of their minds.
