Designing the classroom of the future on the Open Architecture Network

Via TEDPrize.org: 2006 TED Prize winner Cameron Sinclair recently wrote to update us on the amazing success of this year’s Open Architecture Challenge. The challenge was for teams of teachers, students, architects and designers to work together to design the classroom of the future for a school of their own choosing. Tens of thousands of participants and hundreds of schools from 45 countries submitted their designs.

The submission period ended on June 1 and will now go through a three step jury process. The winners will be announced in the fall.

Equally as exciting is the groundbreaking of the SIDAREC community center – the first winner of our OAN challenge – tomorrow in Kenya.

The Open Architecture Network is truly helping make innovative design more accessible.
