Stunning Spaces shape Learning
Mark Osborne reminds us to: "never underestimate architecture's ability to shape our behaviour" (Martin Heidegger). With the right affordance, students are able to work collaboratively, in open, adaptable and purposeful spaces.

As we moved into the spaces of Arnolds Creek Primary School, designed by Wayne Stephens, from Clarke Hopkins Clarke, it was evident that the spaces have definitely been designed with the learner at the centre.
Arnolds Creek opened at the beginning of the year. The teaching staff had two days of planning and visionary work prior to opening, then straight into it. The school was in the process of providing students with 1:1 devices.

As there are so many photos to display, I have opted to share them via this link.
Plus, I created a mini survey to collate your observations and wonderings. You can access this by clicking here. Enjoy.
