In September 2021 and 2022, architecture students from Vilnius Technical University worked on design research for school buildings that fit more inclusive education. This important topic is urgent because of new inclusive education laws that will start in 2024. The students worked on literature research and design proposals for schools in Lithuania to ensure more inclusive education. Several students worked on schools that are more suited to the various forms of special needs education. Such as people with a visual impairment, asthmatic children, children with autism, or children with behavioral or learning problems. Another team worked on increasing the accessibility of schools for user groups with varied social backgrounds, economic status or gender. The starting point were existing standardized school buildings from the sixties and seventies in Vilnius. How to make these buildings more inclusive?
Visiting Professor Dr. Dolf Broekhuizen was tutor during the two workshops and gave lectures.
