Overview

Using the ‘learning landscape’ concept as an overarching theme, this book explores how space in schools, colleges and higher education can support changing learning and teaching strategies as well as a wide range of other community based uses. From the exploration of individual learning settings through to the creation of learning centred masterplanning of major higher education institutions, this book provides both breadth and depth in order to fully illustrate all of the issues involved.

Presenting examples of innovative learning environments from the UK, USA and Australia, this book explores how learning and teaching at every stage of life can be supported by the physical and virtual places within which it takes place. Including full colour illustrations, technical drawings and plans, this is the complete design guide for any architect working on a learning environment from pre-school to tertiary education.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, the book is successful in challenging existing use of learning space, and proposing new and innovative models for the future. Once you have read it, you are likely to re-evaluate your lab, classroom, studio –and the library –and the cafe –and the picnic bench -and even your own workspace, asking yourself how these potentially constraining environments be used to promote innovative practice in HE."Katharyne McFarlane, Innovative Practice in Higher Education
