Designed as a learning space for the future, LAVA‘s design focuses on an environment that is sustainable, integrates with the landscape, connects with the school environment, and is suitable for prefabrication and mass customization. Relocatables are the decades old solution to changing demographics, remote community needs, and natural disasters. Unsightly, they are perceived as cheap and unpleasant spaces. This idea is upturned with spaces that are sustainable, practical, cost effective whilst making learning fun and exciting. More images and architects’ description after the break. Mankind | Nature | Technology With the rapid pace of information across the globe new opportunities are emerging for making connections between local, regional and global contexts. The classroom of the future uses this current technology revolution to position a space for learning at the nexus between knowledge and social interaction. The design anticipates the future by allowing classes to be subdivided in flexible clusters, which can continuously change. The teacher, rather than being watched like a black box theatre performance, is in the center of these clusters and moves around them. The system acts as an adaptable system instead of a fixed hierarchy.
