Individuality + Unity

The role of this classroom experiment was to develop a model of a space which upheld the values of flexibility, equality, and spatial awareness while also remaining functional. Our group decided to create an open-ended classroom model which was made up of tables pushed towards the walls and chairs floating in the center of the room. This allows for personal space while also creating a sense of mobility, vulnerability, and an egalitarian dynamic. This arrangement allows for personal preference, allowing students to choose either a chair by itself, a desk, or the floor – creating an equal access to conversation.
