future obsolete

Technology is ever evolving, stretching and transforming our interaction with each other and the spaces we are in. As such a new technology may simply require a presence within the building, so that it may be taught and explored, but it may equally require spaces that allow different social interaction in the same way that for example, a screen requires darkness. At the same time, we keep buildings for a long time, while whatever is the current state of the art of a technology may emerge and pass in much shorter time spans. So we must equip ourselves to be flexible: Instead of arranging spaces to the demands of a specific technology, we will develop a series of strategies to allow our spaces to change. In that spirit we aim to address the existing buildings of secondary education, whether they are already technologically obsolete or new and future obsolete.
