Design principles at work in Frankfurt
How do you grasp the full potentials of a set of design principles? By putting them into practice!
This is the aim for the German educational state congress Landeskongress 2019 – "Ganztagsschule – Raum für mehr!" arranged by Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung in Hessen, where the entire congress is organized and mapped according to the design principles of our studio.
By following a program of Campfires, Mountain Tops and Watering holes, the participants will get a fuller understanding of how we learn and how the physical setups can support us in the process.
Our Project Manager Carla Viejo Casas will introduce the studio's philosophy to learning spaces that foster 21st-century education, explaining how design can be a strategic tool to create differentiated learning environments that enable better ways of learning.
Especially the increased school hours in the German Ganztag Schule has created an interest for more flexible learning spaces. To address this need we are currently working on the two pilot project environments in Hamburg specially designed for the arising needs of the full-day school model.
The Landeskongress 2019 takes place the September 12 in Frankfurt.
