About two years ago we started a new initiative called Open De School | Open The School.
At this moment, we have a great deal of expertise and experience when it comes to designing schools. During our practice, we notice that a lot of schools are aware of all the changes around us but at the same time don’t know what that could mean for teaching in the future.
What will young people learn?
How will they learn?
Where will the learn?
Open The School’s aim is to talk about this issue with school boards, school- and facility managements, teachers and students in an informal way. To listen, discuss and come up with new and unexpected spatial solutions.
If there is any moment to rethink the spatial possibilities in designing schools for decades to come it is now!
