Christof Jantzen of Studio Jantzen has conceptualized a temporary classroom to fulfill the need for healthier temporary spaces—that often become permanent—for students. His plan seeks to address issues of flexibility, sustainability, cost effectiveness, and creative construction.
The building begins as a kit of parts to be constructed onsite.
Among Jantzen's goals for his design is "to support existing technologies, accommodate advancing technologies, and provide better control of light, ventilation, and acoustics."
"Teaching and learning methods are intrinsically linked to the environments in which they are produced," says Jantzen. "We must consider the most sustainable [building] methods." Those include simple approaches such as improving air quality through a more open-plan design.
The elevations show a building that is more attuned to its environment than existing temporary classrooms.
