The end of compartmentalisation in school environments
According to architects BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), the design for WeGrow — the first school of office-sharing brand WeWork — seeks to ‘undo the compartmentalisation often found in traditional school environments and reinforces the significance of engaging kids in an interactive environment.’
Modular classrooms, tree houses, and a vertical farm have been designed by BIG to promote an inclusive and collaborative learning environment.
Acoustic clouds, natural materials, and neutral colours hope to create a calm setting focused study.
This first WeGrow is located in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood and will welcome children ages 3 through 9, adding ages 2 and older next year.
