What is driving change in the design of university learning spaces? The &\also thinktank provides a guide to current issues, and how learning spaces have and are continuing to become more ‘businesslike’.
State of the Estate provides an evidence-based toolkit for procuring education spaces in a competitive and changing market. Broad shifts affecting the higher education sector are seen through the lens of post-occupancy evaluations of eight Hawkins\Brown projects. The theme of the report is that with education playing a more involved and intertwined role in professional life, learning environments have to look and act more ‘businesslike’.
State of the Estate was launched and presented at the annual conference.
