Our aim is to break down barriers between disciplines and to bridge learning experiences within institutions, especially between schools, learning centres and museums. And we want to support and encourage those who work in educational spaces to go further with it.
WHO WE ARE
We are designers-architects-communicators-educators-researchers and thinkers who believe that architecture and design can encourage new relationships and attitudes towards the world by promoting more creative ways of learning.
WE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN REIMAGINE EDUCATION
That we can promote a more integrated, interdisciplinary and genuinely interactive – physical, mental and cultural – approach to learning processes, encouraging knowledge building and the development of social and cultural skills in a more meaningful way.
WE BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO BREAK DOWN BARRIERS
We need to dissolve boundaries between disciplines.
We need to break down barriers in the educational system.
We need to reconnect schools, museums, learning and community centres.
WE BELIEVE WE SHALL NURTURE A NEW CULTURE OF LIFELONG LEARNING,
that will foster people's development towards a more comprehensive and inclusive approach to the world as well as a more positive and creative contribution to society.
We value an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to education.
We believe we need to awaken empathy to foster positive contribution to society.
We are grounded in the idea that learning should be playful
to spark and give space to imagination and creativity.
We are convinced that learning emerges only through the persistent iterative process of inquiry,
invention and re-invention that embraces risk and sees mistakes as “food for thought”.
