ILS Innovative Learning Spaces “Schools to be live” is the 5th Edition of the Scientific School organized by the DICAAR (Department of Civil, Environmental Engineering and Architecture), University of Cagliari and with the DADU (Department of Architecture, Design and Planning, University of Sassari and the e national network PRIN - ProSE - Prototypes of schools to be lived (IUAV, UNICA, Polimi, UNIVPM, Uni Campania, INDIRE), with the contribution of Sardegna Ricerche and Fondazione di Sardegna.
The new edition ILS 2022_Schools to be lived aims at designing the school of the future, trying to erase the existing limits between the dimension of the school space and that of the real world, of everyday life, characterised by rapid exchange of information, new technologies, social and virtual environments, BIM design and energy sustainability.
The most recent European funding programs for research - Horizon Europe - place education as a necessary and indispensable condition for the growth of human capital able to face decisive challenges for an inclusive, innovative and safe society. We intend to explore these concepts in the activities of ILS 2022 with an operational workshop where experts, students and professionals from the world of business can collaborate in the development of new ideas and project proposals according to principles of interdisciplinarity and transversality.
ILS 2022_Schools to be lived intends to intervene on the design of the school space, rethinking the role that the space itself plays in the dynamics of learning processes, as well as reasoning around the renewal of the educational organization. The prerequisite will be to consider the articulation of flexible, modular and multifunctional spaces, which can be adapted to the subjective needs of the individual growth paths of students' skills, incorporating principles and materials related to good sustainable practices as their constituent elements, which can accommodate the new technological tools as a form of strengthening of real space.
For some time now, it is a common idea that the school should be configured as a broad and diversified system of cultural, social and educational functions, integrated with the community and open to socialization. The "school to be lived" should then respond to this goal, also and above all in the conformation of the interior spaces and fittings, "breaking" the rigid and traditional setting of classrooms-circulation spaces, and offering differentiated and multifunctional environments. Orientation also indicated by the recent Miur Guidelines on Scholastic. Finally, it is always in this direction that the studies aimed at the implementation and development of ICT technologies are inserted, with the dual aim of improving the internal environment, in terms of microclimatic, luminous, thermal, functional and safety conditions, etc., both to provide devices and applications for educational-didactic purposes.The educational objective of the Scientific School ILS is to train designers for educational environments as highly specialized figures, with specific skills in design and implementation of new school spaces, or for the adaptation of existing ones.

Target group

The Scientific School is open to students, undergraduates, graduates and professionals interested in innovative learning spaces. The school will host 35 students maximum. Heterogeneity is encouraged also through the participation of local students. Backgrounds coming from ICT, architecture and urban design, product design, pedagogy, science of materials and those dealing with energy issues (control, recovery and production) are welcome. Agreements with the competent institutions will be defined in order to give the participants the corresponding credits, both in academic and professional terms.

Course aim

The school will last 8 days, from 28 August to 04 September.The school will be organized as an intensive workshop. The students will be involved in focus groups, debates, lectures, and studios coordinated by renowned architects.
