Six Pedagogy-Inspired Classrooms Selected for EDspaces 2018
Silver Spring, Md. — The Education Market Association (EDmarket) announces the winning classroom designs to be featured at EDspaces this November 7-9 in Tampa, Florida. These unique educational environments provide an extension of learning for participants to experience first-hand the latest product and space innovations.
The following firms were chosen to design classrooms for EDspaces 2018:
Architecture for Education
NorvaNivel + Gould Evans
OnPoint Innovative Learning Environments
Van Auken Akins Architects
Classroom design judges, comprised of past winners of the design competition, school purchasing influencers, and AIA-CAE member architects, conducted an extensive review process to make final selections. Two designed learning environments will be located directly on the exhibit floor, and four will be located in the convention center meeting rooms. An additional classroom was added to this year's program in anticipation of an increase in attendance after record numbers of school and architect attendees last year.
Proposals were evaluated for aesthetics, overall functionality, vendor engagement, relevance to the future of educational facilities, and flexibility of the learning space. Nearly 60 education sessions will be held in these six designed classrooms, allowing attendees to experience how different products work in a various educational settings.
EDspaces is the conference advancing the conversation about the future of learning environments. It is where innovations are unveiled and collaborations form, bringing together education’s creative change agents who plan, design and manage educational spaces. Leaders from school districts and colleges, architects, interior designers, dealers and exhibitors engage and participate in this ongoing transformation. This growing event was honored in Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 for three categories in 2017.
