Tis the season for year end round-ups! Designboom put together a great list of their favorite educational architectural innovations of 2015. See the full list here.
educational architecture is a powerful tool for stimulating creativity, as well enhancing concentration, motivation and understanding. whether it is at kindergarten, high school or university, the environment in which we study directly influences how knowledge is absorbed. 2015 saw a wide range of educational facilities promoting sensitivity towards landscape, flexibility, and the future. with this in mind, design can be utilized not only for gaining skills, but also for bringing communities together. take a look at our TOP 10 educational facilities, realized this year, which caught our attention.
