If we think about how the educational system worked in the past, we can quickly see that both the teaching style in universities as well as their infrastructure were very different from today’s current system. The educational model of the twentieth century could be defined as being similar to the spatial model of prisons, with no interest in stimulating a comprehensive, flexible and versatile education.
However, we are now at a time when social, economic and technological developments have created a more global society and where information and learning are becoming more affordable. This radical change has transformed the societies in which we live, leaving the current educational model based on a rigid and unidirectional teaching obsolete.
The Universities are now exploring the new paradigms and opening up new possibilities within the design of educational spaces.
