📑 Are we designing and building the right schools for future Australia? (We could be getting it so wrong)

Bookmarked Are we designing and building the right schools for future Australia? (We could be getting it so wrong) by an author (EduResearch Matters)

The beginning of the 2020s is an opportune moment for us all to re-think and re-design Australian schooling. As the pioneering architect of many schools and universities, Giancarlo De Carlo, put it almost 50 years ago, “architecture is too important to be left to architects”.

Adam Wood shares four insights from debates around building schools and learning spaces:

  • Avoid crisis mentality
  • Design schools for living as well as learning
  • We only get what we pay for
  • We need a debate about school architecture

This is a useful provocation in regards to learning spaces.
