INTERIOR CLASSROOM CLUSTER
PROJECT BY KAITLYN ROGERS
Introducing HexFlex Learning; a flexible learning solution. This building and modules are meant to replace the typical school building that we often see in our communities.
The main portion of the building, that houses the gymnasium, admin spaces, cafeteria, and other community workspaces is meant to be more of a permanent building for the community. The classrooms, or individual learning clusters, are semi-permanent, in the same fashion that portables are. They are built to be able to come apart and move around, either lessening the number of classrooms or adding them according to the influx of students.
Not only does this allow the school system to flex and grow with the surrounding community, but also ensures the students that would have been put into portables at a typical school are still connected to their school community. These classroom pods are designed to withstand the usual Canadian weather, have better accessibility than typical portables, and have more flexible interiors to conform and flex to the student's educational and physical needs while encouraging community and collaboration.
