The study group is coming to a close, and one of our final visits was to the onsight gradeschool at the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre. Esthetics are still key to the level 1-6 classroom environments, as is the use of natural lighting and plants to create an osmosis between indoors and outdoors. As with the preschools, there are many designated areas to work and collaborate, as well as an abundance of space to occupy. I didn’t notice a ” Teacher’s Desk” in the classrooms, and each room seemed to have a distinct personality. We were not allowed to observe students in the classroom, or to take photographs in order to respect the privacy of students and faculty.
