Six Outstanding Classroom Designs Selected for EDspaces 2019
Silver Spring, Md. – The Education Market Association (EDmarket) announces the winning classroom designs to be featured at EDspaces this fall, October 23-25, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. These unique educational environments provide an extension of learning for participants to experience first-hand the latest product and space innovations. Following a competitive design process, these firms were chosen to design classrooms for EDspaces Classroom design judges, comprised of past winners of the design competition (not submitting for EDspaces 2019), school purchasing influencers, and AIA-CAE member architects, conducted an extensive review to make final selections. Proposals were evaluated for aesthetics, overall functionality, vendor engagement, relevance to the future of educational facilities, and flexibility of the learning space.
“It is great to see designs for EDspaces that reflect the needs of the modern classroom,” commented one of the judges, Robert Dillon, author of Redesigning Learning Spaces. “It appears as though everyone is listening in a deeper way to what needs to be done to improve the physical environment which results in great spaces for students.”
Education sessions will be held in these six designed classrooms throughout the event, allowing attendees to experience how different products work in a variety of collaborative, flexible educational settings. A Classroom Open House will be held late Wednesday afternoon, October 23, to allow attendees to view the classrooms, visit with the designers, and try out the fun and flexible furniture.
EDspaces is the premiere event to explore how the convergence of pedagogy, space and technology combined with innovation affects facility design and use and, ultimately, student outcomes.
