Planning Learning Spaces demonstrates cutting-edge approaches to educational space design, from primary to college studies, and explains how these spaces support education and enhance learning experiences. With contributions from leading professionals, including Herman Hertzberger and Sir Kenneth Robinson, Planning Learning Spaces is an invaluable resource for architects, interior designers and educators.
