School of The Future

What ?

Are you ready to imagine and design what ‘School of the Future’ would look like? Now is the opportunity for you to share your vision of future schools!

The outcome of this endeavour is for participants to raise awareness of the emerging resources and to expand the horizons of architecture to be more responsive, dynamic and enjoyable. Most of all, to create experiential spaces which shall demonstrate and evince a soul but resemble the uniqueness of your school.

Participants shall design the above-mentioned architecture through the interaction of objects, environments adopting tactile, sensing co-ordination, networked and responsive technologies. Using a common medium for this task, eligible participants shall be afforded two choices of a nominated quantity of "building modules or units" which will be based from recycled materials and the ability to be relocated and flexible.
