Starting Point

Designed LINK-shaped classrooms as a shape that encourages interactive lectures suitable for learning foreign languages and different cultures. They are also the structures supporting the building. In the space composed of LINKs, planned to coexist various learning scene, and connect them visually.

SOLUTION

Each LINK is customised to promote learning along with student interaction. The curtains were chosen in line with the links’ requirements—with the fabric’s drape and the textiles’ transparency, acoustics as well as glare and thermal protection being the decisive factors.
