Today’s students experience their formidable educational years at what may be a pivotal time in history. A rapidly advancing digital world, combined with a changing and challenging economical landscape, have translated into new ideas about learning and teaching. "Everyone, both within the educational community and the public at large, seems to feel we’re at a watershed moment in terms of education," exhibition curator Thomas Mellin explains. "While this is the Center for Architecture, anyone who has a child in New York City and many who don’t are obsessed with education and schools."
Edgeless School: Design for Learning is on view at the Center for Architecture in New York City through January 19, 2013. Several programs are running concurrently with the exhibition.
