Family-Style Classroom

We wanted to create an environment with natural light where everyone can be seen and heard. By using one large table we are forced to sit next to each other which fosters community. The proximity of the students allows for them to participate without having to speak loudly or turn around. The professors sit along with the students at the table, but they are also free to get up and lecture. If the professors decide to hold a lecture, the students can transform the modular table to allow for all the students to view the board and professor. -Augusta Spiro Jaeger, Brittany Tucker, Mia Quinn, Alec Waters, Guobin Yue
