Classroom of the Future

This is a transportable space that provides music and film making facilities to secondary school children in Camden. The central idea was that because of its mobility it could be used by more than one school, optimising both investment and availability to a wide group of school children.

The classroom arrives onsite as an enclosed box. Computer control systems activate hydraulic legs that position the container onto the ground, and allow sections of the wall and roof to expand and open. The side wall of the container also opens out to enable an external audience to view films on a (small cinema sized) monitor from within the shell. Therefore the classroom is not only a learning environment; it is also a presentational facility.
