The design requirements for this project were at the master plan scale down to the smaller spacial requirements of a classroom. While part of this project it was our teams vision to reinvent the current classroom and reinvent the interaction between student and teacher through means of design. We looked at cheaper construction interventions such as shipping containers and studied an array of space creating techniques using a modular system.
