New technologies have increasingly moved to the center of 21st century learning, inspiring innovative learning concepts and potentially influencing our conception of educational space. This research refers to discoveries in neuroscience and cognitive psychology; it introduces theories about the ideal learning environment and takes a look at studies about the influence of the environment on academic performance and behavior.
While online education has brought with it radical transformations to higher education, bringing people together in physical space is and will be essential for student success.
The architectural design of an LDR room can greatly facilitate the use of non-pharmacological techniques for effective pain relief.
British Technology Innovation Centers each focus on a particular research theme that, though specialized, has relevance across a wide range of industries. They promote faster and more effective translation of laboratory discoveries into products and processes for commercialization.
Ecoshed planning closes the loop of water and nutrients – the Resource Infinity Loop – by reclaiming wastewater through natural processes and reusing it for urban farming.
