Designing New Schools: The Race for Space

Web Abstract: 
Research shows that for effective learning to occur, children must be actively involved. They need space to work with a wide variety of materials, share ideas, and present their findings. Architects are working to produce designs featuring large common areas or large complexes devoted to specific interests. Working in an open environment encourages discussion, cooperation, and experimentation.
