Rosan Bosch: School with no walls

There's so many great things to say about the education system in Sweden, and now Swedish Free School Organization Vittra only adds to the list! In this school there are no classes or classrooms, instead there is an open floor design where kids are taught in groups in different areas of the school: the wateringhole, the show-off, the cave, the campfire and the laboratory. The Copenhagen-based architecture firm Rosan Bosch created these different spaces, all of which present a unique challenge to the child. This project shows how important the environment and physical space can determine a child's attitude and ability to learn.
