  2. 2. OrdrupSkole<br />School had a modern extension which staff could not adapt to, so Bosch & Fjord brought in to dispel animosity and change how staff and pupils used the space.<br />B & F resided at Ordrup for several months where staff and pupils could drop and set tasks for the users, e.g. post-its to signpost favourite places<br />3 defined themes – Concentration & Reflection<br /> Dialogue & Concentration<br /> Community & Safety<br />Changed hallways – made them wider to change their focus, e.g. computer stations, games, social areas, alternative learning spaces for small groups<br />Clearly Defined spaces, e.g. homely spaces. Different learning approaches in different spaces<br />No fences – school an active part of the community, undulated outdoor spaces<br />Rails to hang things from such as art<br />Lots of different chairs for different people’s needs<br />Mats to define social groups<br />Reading tubes, dry jacuzzis, <br />Use of colour<br />

Ørestad Gymnasium<br />Designed by 3XN<br />Impressive and amazing stairs<br />Stairs were the central core to the whole building<br />Square building from outside, curvy interior structures<br />Light responsive coloured blinds on the exterior of the building<br />Good relationship with apple – good discount for staff and students<br />All students buy apple laptops at a subsidised rates through the Gynasium.<br />4 different types of classrooms – traditional, enclosed circular with moveable doors, circular raised areas, open-plan areas<br />All work based around laptops – problems with students continually on Facebook<br />Looking into becoming a ‘Virtual School’ for distance learning<br />Gynasium originally designed for 800 students. Now 1,000 plus students and it feels like the space is struggling to retain its flexible teaching approaches. All teachers assigned a space to teach for the year<br />

Top Ten Thoughts<br />‘”Use space as a tool” Bosch & Fjord<br />How do you create a glass box which does not feel too exposing?<br />Use at least 3 different types of chairs<br />Use colour which can be reflected onto white walls<br />Use a range of lighting, e.g. pendant, angle-poise, subtle colours to demarquate specific space<br />Don’t let the architecture dominate the presence of the users<br />Fatboys do not work!<br />Nurture gallery educators european/international network - set up blog with links??<br />Take off outdoor shoes<br />Flexible spaces<br />
