Abstract [en]

A school can be regarded from its spatial configuration. These spaces can create expectations and be experienced as inspiring, they can create opportunities but even limitations for the learning of teachers and pupils. Then, what conveys the impression of the spaces? How does the space formation affect the learning process? To what extent do the spaces in school give rise to human relations? What actions and thought space is constituted? A school building can from an architectural starting point be regarded from many perspectives, where perhaps the most prominent are the material characteristics. However, to understand a building only from material characteristics will not give a comprehensive view of the situation. Instead there are also both functional and aesthetic characteristics within a building. Added to that are complicated questions concerning the architecture formation in relation to the human. One way to approach these dimensions, from a scientific perspective, is to take the phenomenological movement as a point of departure, and to be more precise - the phenomenology of the life-world. We claim that it is possible to study and to make a theoretical set of concepts of the meaning of space within learning. This paper will discuss these questions from a life-world approach.
