The Learning Space category at the 2023 INDE.Awards exemplifies great design that supports education through best practice architecture and the shortlist this year proves the point.
June 29th, 2023
Leading the way in innovation and excellence, the shortlisted projects in The Learning Space category in the INDE.Awards this year encompass design that is for now and the future. There is rigour within every project where forward thinking concepts are realised through the spatial flow, materiality, colour palette and amenity that combines to foster a greater experience for students, teachers and visitors.
As supporter of The Learning Space category, Autex Acoustics is a champion of design that enhances and supports all manner of education projects. Autex Acoustics provide products that can transform a space, both acoustically and aesthetically, to create a safe and sustainable environment where education can be learned and taught at optimal levels. As a carbon neutral company in every facet of its business, Autex Acoustics has this and future generations of students and teachers firmly in its sights, along with a better global environment for everyone.
With the shortlist of The Learning Space there is variety in the nature of the institutions and the architecture and design that has been conceived. There are arts and science buildings, primary schools, centres for specialised studies, public and private schools and, whether new builds or adaptive reuse projects, each provides detailed and cutting edge design for a fully resolved project.
There is access to the outdoors, sensitive heritage inclusion, colour and shiny new spaces but whatever the form, each project better assists users to interact with their surroundings, communicate and collaborate, and focus on the act of learning. Along with wonderful design, sustainability is integral to a healthy environment that promotes wellbeing that is essential for better education.
