Coworking at the University of Adelaide's Student Hub

Here's something pretty inspiring.

I came across this video last night and wanted to share it with you. I was fascinated to learn how Hassell, the international design practice, developed the new student hub space at the University of Adelaide together with student consultations.

What they created really revolutionises the traditional lecture theatre leaning style.

They say that the lecture theatre learning style is a like a 'dinasaur'. It's so old.

'Learning Environments need to evolve to adapt to cultural and technological changes.'

Traditional learning environments and office environments are moving into much more of a collaborative form.

The way we interact, learn, share, get creative and work is changing and Adelaide University, together with Hassell architects absolutely nailed this amazing space. Take a look.

The generation that learns in a collaborative coworking environment will be how that generation works in their professional life.
