What kind of school do we want? The architecture of schools as an element of the (hidden) curriculum
Ksenija Bregar Golobič Summary:

Summary:  The architecture of schools or the spatial issue in the context of schools has only seldom been raised as a pedagogical (curricular) topic and was never embraced as a truly meaningful one. Similarly, working on schools is far from prestigious in architecture itself, and yet, it is considered one of the profession’s greatest challenges. This paper attempts to illuminate the spatial issue from the point of view of the concept of the hidden curriculum in schools, which reveals it as an important curricular topic. The architecture of schools, as an element of the hidden curriculum (the typical school routine), is an integral part of the curriculum itself. The more we deal with the hidden curriculum, the more apparent the importance of the architecture of schools will become.
