Hellrup school
Take a large volume of children, pass them through a narrow opening like a corridor or stairwell - you get friction and problems. As children's learning becomes more complex and varied, their timetable block lengths increase dramatically. Children concentrate, are engaged and don't want to stop, so they move less. School design stops being about moving large volumes of children efficiently. Many corridors disappear; learning space grows significantly and discipline improves too. Wide stairs can double up as lecture theatre steps and the whole school becomes more social and engaging.
Learning is lovely, wish you were here
