THE READING ROOM: WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM THE SMALLEST OF PROJECTS

“I recently completed a little private project at a local primary school in North London, and although very small, done very quickly and for very little money, within it are all the ingredients that are not just important to a primary school but also useful in all forms of design for education. The perspective I used here is the same perspective FreeState use when we are looking at the grandest piece of city or the grandest campus.

What I’m talking about is how we use ‘experience thinking’ to deliver a learning environment that is relevant, attracts students and staff and creates a sense of belonging. From the smallest reading room to the grandest campus the principles are the same – if you lead with the¬†ideal experience rather than the ideal environment¬†then you are more likely to attract, to involve and create a sense of belonging … true for little people as it is for big people!”

– Charlotte Scott, FreeState

Enjoy the film.

And as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
