Construction Site School – or: How will we learn tomorrow?
© Bruno Klomfar

The built environment has, as teaching staff and pupils themselves regularly report, a direct effect on the wellbeing and so on the learning patterns of both young and older schoolchildren.

Not least in the light of the current pan-European debate on education, the BIG Az W Symposium ‘Construction Site School – or: How will we learn tomorrow’ provides Austrian and international experts on the most varied of disciplines with an opportunity to have their say on themes relating to education, architecture, child-psychology and school building policy.

The discussion is intended to provide a coherent and holistic image of modern pioneering school buildings, projects which, in the final analysis, have nothing more to do with schools that adhere to the now antiquated frontal approach to teaching.
