THE BIG QUESTION

THE BIG QUESTION

How does one design a school for the future?

KEY INSIGHT

Children cannot be classified into one homogenous community. A school therefore needs to be designed to cater to different age groups and different learning aptitudes.

Children cannot be classified into one homogenous community. A school therefore needs to be designed to cater to different age groups and different learning aptitudes. Most schools follow theory driven  ‘Know > Feel > Do’ continuum of learning, however following a design thinking philosophy of ‘Do > Feel > Know’ can make learning more engaging and long lasting.

 
Brand Concept

 

“Open Minds” - A brand that recognizes that every child is special and aims to shape their minds to be open to self discovery, new thoughts and ideas for growth. We visualized this thought of ‘open minds’ and ‘free thought’ through the metaphor of a dandelion. 

The logo is inspired by the dandelion. The delicate yet tangible form of the dandelion translates the “open minds” thought of Oakridge effectively. The logo communicates freedom of thought, self-confidence and an open thinking process.

Experience Design

 

Rethinking school architecture - The experience of the school was designed for different age groups in one single corridor-less school. The layout ensures maximum level of natural light across all areas
