The Plugin Learning Blox helps alleviate the high demand for educational space in rapidly growing cities. It also responds to the need for classrooms to support innovative learning as China transitions to a post-industrial economy. The project is a pop-up school that can be rapidly deployed and easily adapted to current and future education models.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
Advances in education call for greater emphasis on self-directed learning, social connection, and systematic problem solving. Interdisciplinary project-based learning is becoming a crucial methodology for young individuals. The “Plugin Learning Blox" is composed of several classrooms organized as project groups around a common area. Educational activities are held in the central public space where the community is invited to participate. The project classrooms serve as breakaway spaces for smaller group and individual learning.
The building uses the China Construction Science & Technology Company’s prefabricated building system, the same flat-pack modular system used to build a hospital in 10 days in Wuhan. All the components were produced in a factory and the construction on site took 3 days. The building can also be disassembled, relocated and reused.
Creation Process & Result
“玩学块儿”作为未来+学院策划的“闪建策略园”的一部分，参与了2019年深港双城双年展。展览期间，承担园区具体教学展示的功能，项目开放展示区中介绍众建筑研发的玩学架（Plugin Learning Loft），该项目是一个学前儿童的空间教具研究计划，旨在将空间作为早期教育的第三个教学维度。 玩学架由基本的空间框架和可替换的填充物料组成，这些多样化的填充物料支持通过游戏来进行学习。
The Plugin Learning Blox was presented as part of The Popup Campus organized by FuturePlus Academy for the 2019 Shenzhen-Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Architecture\Urbanism. As part of the exhibition, PAO’s Plugin Learning Lofts occupied the central common area to support educational activities. The project is a prototype designed to explore space as a third teaching dimension in early age education. The “Plugin Learning Loft” consists of a basic spatial structure with interchangeable infill elements that support learning through play.
How does the project reflect the exhibition theme "Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design"?
The long-term rapid economic development of the Greater Bay Area has brought about the problem of insufficient supply of social infrastructure, such as a serious shortage of schools and enrolment opportunities. At the same time, the overall education sector in China is changing and innovating, and different teaching methodologies and learning spaces are emerging.
Therefore, rapid prefab construction provides more possibilities to adapt to innovative education, and a design that can give children more opportunities for high-quality education is a design that is more humanistic and people-centred. The “Plugin Learning Blox” is a prototype for such a design approach.
