Contemporary spaces dedicated to the spread of knowledge – universities, conservatories, nursery schools and libraries – are carefully selected by Floornature to show the innovations and technical and aesthetic developments in educational buildings. Large-scale, versatile and multifunctional projects are joined by local experiments, like enlarging and restoring buildings with a great symbolic value. The projects show a common desire to create spaces where people can congregate and share knowledge, without spatial or temporal constraints.
