The project takes a philosophical and theoretical path in searching for an alternative classroom typology. Inspired by Alain de Botton’s writing on how architecture has the capabilities interacting with our senses and minds, the project investigates the idea of making classroom a ‘teacher’ – it ‘speaks’ and even ‘teaches’ the children – by introducing in the architecture, the notion of ambiguity, abstractness and open-endedness.

Tutors: Rhys Cannon, Colin Herperger
