Lessons in classrooms without multiple desks in front of the desk, one billion from NRR to create 195 schools with open spaces and co-design

They arrive an additional 370 million they will come after redesign architecture, space and interior design of school buildings provided by Pnrr. The announcement was made by Minister of Education during his speech at the presentation of the ‘Futura’ project, which includes intervention by the NRR for school buildings, at the Milan Triennial.

“After weeks of work, I can announce that we have increased the resources available for the call, from the initial expected 800 million to approx. 1.17 billionsaid the Minister.


The lines, articulated in a list, are the result of the work of some architects, who met with educators and experts from the school in a working group that the ministry wanted and set up.

Among the professionals who have prepared the document are there the architects Stefano Boeri, Cino Zucchi, Luisa Ingaramo, and the director of the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation, Andrea Gavosto.

Within this week, the areas where the new schools envisaged in the call will be announced, also in the south (also in the form of “help” for female mothers of pupils), which will be inspired by the guidelines and by the end of Month, the competition will start by 195 schools.

All the selected schools must respond to ten characteristics of the ‘school of the future’: quality, low consumption, sustainability, hospitality, open spaces and co-design orientedflexibility, bodily involvement, functional equipment, technologies and connectivity.

What we are doing, said Minister Patrizio Bianchi while attending the event in Milan, is “an extraordinary work, translating what many experiments have already done: a sustainable school, open, integrated into the territory, serving as a point. reference also in the afternoon “.

Just a year ago, the architect Stefano Boeri, among those who prepared the document for the Ministry of Education, had configured his idea of the classroom of the future: a place, according to him, created to be innovative, safe and in the name of multifunctionality. But above all, it must be a classroom that can be adapted to the needs, very different from the traditional one with the desks lined up in front of the chair by the teacher, considered an outdated model.

From the study of Stefano Boeri interiorborn of the cooperation between Napisan And Stefano Boeri interior As part of the “Hygiene Together” initiative, training environments have been found that are useful in encouraging participation, not forgetting DaD, as an opportunity to be offered by going beyond Covid-19.

The classrooms of the future would also seem very useful for living in school all day, also on weekends and perhaps in the summer, as the administration has planned.

One of the characteristics of these innovative classrooms is that the walls will no longer be fixed, to modulate the space according to different needs.

The goal, he said architect Stefano Boeriis “to give students access to external places, a public school in the true sense of the word. But also to give those who work in these external places the opportunity to return to the school room and carry out activities that affect the life of the neighborhood”.

“We are thinking – the architect added – of models of teaching spaces that allow experiments. We imagine spaces that can be adapted to differentiated teaching models, perhaps in the same classroom, with movable walls that make it possible to modulate the space to suit different needs. “.

Moreover, light, colors, technology and decor learning boundaries will be among the protagonists of this new way of thinking: when it comes to flexible spaces that change and adapt to any need, it means creating music halls, craft workshops and dance schools when neededswitch even more times on the same day.

The classroom of the future will also be equipped with advanced technological systems designed to improve the quality of distance learning: hygiene education, social distancing, air purification equipment, regular cleaning activities and the search for washable and antibacterial materials, are key themes for a conscious restart and for rethinking the concept of indoor hygiene and pollution.
