THE SKUB PROJECT
In 2004 Kollision was asked to join the SKUB project as designers and process facilitators. The project’s aim was to redesign all of the schools in Gentofte Municipality to meet modern standards of learning.
MODERN STANDARDS OF LEARNING
The fundamental values of the project was concerned about the educational development of tomorrows citizens; preparing students for the society of the future and - in connection with the building itself - to create ownership of the schools through dialogue and involvement with all relevant actors in an equal partnership in both the development and (re) building. The SKUB project was in many ways a revolution in relation to how we normally think about learning spaces and was reviled by many – but has since been imitated by more.
Our first contribution to the project was the making of the book "School Days". A historical – and futuristic – review of the concept of learning from the oral tradition around the campfire, the desk in the monastic cell, and on to the modern IT-supported projects. The second half of the book contained our vision of what a future school might look like, focusing on the integration of new, innovative IT tools. The book is still used to inspire other schools to think about their learning spaces in new and novel ways.
