    Bruce Jilk
    Jury Chair
  • Q & A Bruce Jilk - Amsterdam Watershed

    “Creating single purpose spaces (math classroom, circulation corridor) is a barrier architecture, not an enabling architecture.” Bruce Jilk

    Speakers & Case Studies:

  • Herman Hertzberger - Keynote Address
  • Dr. George Copa - Learning at the Margins: Implications for Designing Learning Environments
  • Reino Tapaninen - Schools of the Future: The Need for Open and Flexible Spaces

    “The enormous progress of information technology has made possible information searches from networks outside school, cooperation networks between schools and contacts with other partners and homes. Learning is no longer bound to time and place.” Reino Tapaninen

  • Daniel Duke - Designing a Place for Problem Solving: The Center for Applied Technology and Career Exploration
  • Norman Dull - Designing for the Unknown

    “Teachers use mobile carts as desks … movable walls and furniture allow the staff and students to adjust the rooms to their needs. The building has student ’streets’ instead of halls, with porches serving as entries to each neighborhood.”


  • Joe Nathan - School Size and Quality — What Does This Mean for the Future?
  • Dan Bodette - Creating a Building Design for an Integrated Approach to Teaching and Learning
  • Jaap F. Westbroek - The School as a Building for Lifelong Learning
  • Gert Jan Meijer - Concept Development as the Key to Innovative Accommodation

  • Location

    “Learning is the ‘glue’ of livable communities. Quality of relationships advance as we move from information to knowledge to understanding.”
    Jim Dyck

  • Space

    “Diversity in places for learning is an absolute necessity.”
    Jan Wagemakers, Jeff Lackney, Elly Reinders

  • Time

    “Time is a critical component that shapes educational systems and school buildings. However, it is an element whose impact is rarely considered.”
    Prakash Nair, Hans van Aalst


  • Scale

    “…size has long been used interchangeably with scale, size is just one characteristic of scale. Scale is also defined by its context, its pattern of parts, its syntax.”
    Pam Loeffelman.

  • Cost

    “The use of community and other facilities will also allow for tremendous economies in the development of our future schools.”
    Gaylaird Christopher

  • Context

    “The learning process enables people to be effective in their work, families, and communities. This context, however, is in constant flux. …the more we move toward virtual reality, the more we need context.”
    Lia Burger, William Bradley
