Copy of Inspiring the Educational Journey Through the Built Environment

Research about the ways in which interior design plays an important role in the educational environment by creating a sense of well being, challenging the expected, and supporting the idea that learning is a journey of exploration and discovery.

The labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative and transformational tools known to human kind used for centuries for prayer, ritual, meditation and personal and spiritual growth. This ancient and powerful tool is uni-cursal offering only one route to the center and back out again; no blind alleys, dead ends, or tricks, as in a maze. No matter where you are in the labyrinth’s coherent circuits you can always see the center, once you set your foot upon its path, the labyrinth gently and faultlessly leads you to the center of both the labyrinth and yourself, no matter how many twists and turns you negotiate in the process.” Melissa Gayle West Exploring the Labyrinth: A Guide for Healing Challenging the expected: the Maze: "Harry Potter, Goblet of Fire" scene in which Harry enters the maze during the Triwizard Tournament. "It is the stress respond that helps Harry Potter marshal his strength and maintain his focus, enabling him to continue on his quest. While it is bad to have too much of a stress response, which makes you freeze, it is also had to have too little in times of danger. If Harry failed to be vigilant and were unable to concentrate on the task at hand, if he sat down in the maze and went to sleep, he'd be carried off by the next skrewt that came along." Esther M.

Christopher Budd vol 26, iss.1 May 2000 pg. 58-73 JID "Vital to a goodness of fit is recognizing the interrelatedness of all environmental filters. The challenging question for environmental connections becomes: How is the consistency of the whole person in place maintained throughout while reinforced in different components or facets of an organization, permitting variation in preference and needs?"

for Interior Designers" John F. Pile, "Interior Design" " If the end purpose of design is to deliver a sensory
experience to the user or viewer, does it matter what
techniques are used to deliver that experience?" John F. Pile "for theory is just that: it is a metaphor that offers an abstract
point of view somewhere between an existing problem and a previously existing model..." Malcolm Quandrill "Therefore, The aesthetics, atmosphere, and organization
of the space is crucial to the design..." "Physical relics of a bygone era" that show our "continued preference for a mass-production model of education in a world that demands a highly customized education for each child." Prakash Nair The embodiment of an occupant in an educational environment, the true experience and understanding of the three dimensional space, one receives the information visually. In addition to the eyes, the head, and body movements also supply a flow of changing images that create a mental “model” of reality, generating a visual “impression” or experience. Visual impressions are created when an occupant associates individualities about an environment that are abstract, emotional in character. By integrating elements and principles of design the Interior Designer develops and creates these visual impressions. (interpretation of John Pile pg 50) Spatial Intelligence volume, connection to space,
"see" ideas, symmetry, manipulate
3D models in minds, see concept
in action. rearrange and manipulate their environment
tactile, seek ocular stimulation, seek visual movement, visual mapping Bodily/Kinesthetic
Intelligence Internalize information
through bodily sensation learn by doing, seek to interact
with environment hands on learning centers, manipulatives
building and taking apart Musical Intelligence heightened listening ability, seeks
all kinds of patterns, Id's patterns as
expression Seek patterns in their environment
move to rhythm, PU foreign language easily
patterning internalized and recalled ie ideas concepts Enjoys moving to rhythms Elements Line: "Curving forms occur often in nature than right
angled forms, leading us to percieve curvatures as more
natural, freer, and more "humane" than straight line forms." Pile Diagonal line: movement,
dynamic relationship forces
feeling of activity, motion. Form: box like enclosed spaces suggest confinement
restriction elliptical rooms awe openness to universe Texture: readily felt by touching but observed surface
communicates sense of physical contact.

mind enjoys rhythm balance:
symmetry / asymmetry Emphasis: elements of importance “This exhibit opposes any prophetic pedagogy which knows everything before it happens, which teaches children that every day is the same, that there are no surprises, and teaches adults that all they have to do is repeat that which they were not able to learn.” Loris Malaguzzi This exhibit opposes any prophetic design criteria which
knows everything before it happens, which instructs designers
that every project is the same, and that there are no surprises. This exhibit also opposes any prophetic design criteria which tells experienced designers that all they have to do is repeat that which their "mental model" accepts. Shelby S Hicks, NCIDQ #016830
