Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to classify current tendencies, developments and consequently spatial transformations of educational landscapes (schools, librarys, universities, informal educational landscapes) as a place of work, learning and living as well as part of the urban infrastructure - in both formal and informal contexts - and to use them as a basis and preparatory research for further design tasks in the field of educational landscapes.
