THE COLLECTIVE A Space For Active Learning


We are living in a time where information can be accessed anywhere. We no longer need to check out books to find what we are looking for, all the information is avail-

able with the click of a button. However, what we are missing is human interaction in which we can share the resources we have and actively learn through dialogue. We are proposing a collective space in which resident experts and locals can gather and learn from one another. The Collective would host a new theme each month, to guide that months activities. Resident experts in the months theme would be brought in to live at the Collective and share their knowledge with the community through workshops, exhibits, office hours, classroom discussions, and presentations. As the year progresses and The Collective rotates through it’s themes, the building will accumulate more and more books, and artifacts associated to the themes, and become an artifact in itself.
