Schools are in transition. Traditional schools are fact-driven, analogue, teacher-centric and have a rigid structure. Becoming student-centric offers new perspectives on learning. In a time when future employers value qualities such as problem-solving, flexibility and the ability to collaborate in diverse teams, schools must adapt their spaces to give teachers and students the freedom to benefit from new and unique ways of learning.
Based on our research, and by thoroughly understanding the teachers’ learning methods, each school that D/DOCK creates is designed to boost learning attitudes and facilitate 360° learning that is comprehensive and includes the “soft skills” students need to succeed in their futures. With flexible spaces that flow and allow for different types of learning. While always taking into account that a new school building or a renovation is done in a sustainable way, while we always take into account our planets resources, D/DOCK also creates learning environments which are meant for hybrid usage and transparent for the community around the school.
