The Edgeless School: Blurring Traditional Distinctions in the Classroom

The Edgeless School exhibit is open to the public through January 19, 2013.

We blogged on Monday about a new exhibit at the Center for Architecture in New York City. The exhibit focuses on how technology is impacting the way in which architects and educators are approaching the design of learning environments – and the best way to teach.

In this short video (click the image below to view), Thomas Mellins, the curator of The Edgeless School exhibit explains how this notion of “edgelessness” is a blurring of the distinction between the “traditional” classroom of yesterday and the openness that is becoming more prevalent today.
