The surge of multi-disciplinary project-based learning is changing how and where student activities occur and giving birth to additive layers of novel space types. Jennifer Swedell & Andrew Labov examine change drivers including the inter-digitation of teaching and research, access to sophisticated instrumentation, combination of basic and health sciences with engineering and computer science. They set out configurations and planning metrics for the newly emerging space types: learning studios, shared equipment zones, porches and perches, maker and marker space, and action space. They deliver space programming strategies that catalyze activity while increasing visibility for student recruitment and community support.
