Space shapes the way we learn. The design of learning spaces determines how we work within them, and defines the nature and experience of the work. For the Jåttå Vocational School, Henning Larsen created an environment that accommodates a range of learning styles. Filled with natural daylight, a comfortable central atrium forms the social heart of the school – Functioning as a cafeteria, recital area, and social space, the multi-use atrium gathers pupils and teachers for collaborative play and collected learning. A finalist building in World Architecture News’ 2009 World Class Education awards, the Jåttå School emphasizes a range of workspaces and social settings, allowing each student to learn in their own way.
