What we did
Educational Planning and school design for the existing and new Skapaskolan school buildings.
In 2013, PCL was invited by the school to present ideas about contemporary educational facilities from around the world. After the presentations, Peter was approached by a few of the teachers to help them make their modular classrooms less static and more dynamic.
Rooms where the class can meet as a large group, in small cooperative groups and independently. Additionally, more private areas were created for those students who liked to work individually. As one teacher stated, “With this arrangement, the children learn, but I don’t feel like I am teaching anymore.”
Given the success of the classroom spaces, Peter was engaged to develop and Educational Brief and plan the new Skapaskolan with Street Monkey Architects. The result are spaces that support an alternative learning environment where learners can work at their own pace at any time. This was achieved by creating breakout spaces outside the classrooms and developing opportunities for activity settings in the classrooms.
2013-present. The building is scheduled to be completed for the autumn of 2017.
