Purdue learning center to test and explore new approaches to teaching

April 01, 2008 |

Purdue University's $17.5 million, 90,000-sf Discovery Learning Center, set to open in fall 2009, will provide an environment for creating and studying the impact of new teaching methods and cutting-edge learning approaches. Indianapolis-based BSA LifeStructures designed the facility to be flexible to adapt to future needs. Learning spaces will be equipped with movable walls and furniture, and learning labs will incorporate a theatrical tension grid for overhead flexibility. A black-box room will allow researchers to test different room configurations. Maregatti Interiors, Indianapolis, is providing interior design services.
