Nicely Prototypes
Ras Beirut, Lebanon
To reflect the changing needs of engaged learners, Polypod developed five future prototype classrooms at the American University of Beirut. While all of them share flexible furniture and group work capabilities, each prototype explored a different approach, from round tables, modular systems, and raked seating to café style arrangements. The designs are the result of the Dean of Arts and Sciences’ vision to create smart classrooms combined with Polypod’s extensive research in the future of learning environments.
