Image DS(3)6 Field School What kind of spaces will be needed for teaching in the future and how can they nurture understanding of the physical world of weather, climate and the future of our planet? Our students have explored these questions by examining the value of the neighbourhood as a ‘world- in-itself’ using the concept of the 15-minute city, by considering buildings as a ‘third teacher’, and by using environmental design principles to inform strategic design and quality learning spaces. During the year we engaged with what it means to design for an overall- zero embodied carbon and zero carbon in use target, and to consider how architecture can workl enhance site biodiversity. Their work has involved the design of simple passive and active technologies and the means by which children and their community might engage with climate change through the embodied experience of climate (weather) and its visual/tactile effect on building materials and constructions.
