MY college is a strong example of an integral and sustainable design that puts students first, by creating clear floor plans, talking to future users, and thinking about the learning method that will be accommodated in the building. The design is based on the architectural concept of No Dead Ends, which is ideal for interaction between students and a clear overview. In the central Learning Loop, different levels of focus are defined so that students can find spaces that match their concentration requirements.
Students of the MY college develop their skills broadly and lay a foundation for the rest of their lives. Based on the educational vision, students do not immediately have to choose a profession or direction but can experience everything at their own pace. This teaching method is also reflected in the school’s architecture. The design is aimed at the student as an individual, who can study and develop in three different spaces. Firstly, the classrooms are a place where students receive theoretical or practical lessons with fellow students, consisting of classrooms and co-creation practice rooms for larger groups (MY Base). Then there are the learning squares and wide corridors (MY Square), where the students can study together and there is room for interaction and communication. Finally, there are private study rooms (MY Cave) with the possibility of withdrawal and concentration for individual study sessions. The clear layout of the building is essential for good flow and cohesion between the various elements.
