Today’s learning spaces are a far cry from the classrooms of yesteryear, with their rows of desks, a single door and venetian blinds on the windows. Countless studies have shown that the design of an educational space has an enormous influence on the effectiveness of the learning that occurs there. In the exhibition A Place for Learning: Designing Educational Spaces, we explore these ideas through an examination of projects designed by half a dozen local architectural firms. In addition to the ideas of adaptive reuse and sustainability, we look at the use of spaces designed specifically for peer learning, transparency as a safety measure, and flexible areas created for collaboration. We also examine how school design capitalizes on a sense of community and can create a framework for students to understand how the world works through STEM education.

The exhibition is free and open to the public and will remain open through the summer. DCFA hours are 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Friday. The Center will be closed July 4 for Independence Day.

Cost:Free and open to the public.
