One of the questions I am often asked refers to the human-centric approach to space. How can we define it? What is the difference between the anthropocentric space and the Euclidean geometric space? How non-material factors intervene and give meaning to the physical space?
To answer these questions, I propose the presentation, titled "A Human-centric Approach to the Physical Space" that I made as part of my course in the program Master 2 "Dramatic Art and Scenic Arts to Education", at an interdisciplinary audience.
The "U Approach" is an interdisciplinary approach to the design of learning spaces that connects the cognitive and psychosocial requirements of the educational process with both, the characteristics of the student's age and his centers of interest. The "U" approach is applied in the design of learning spaces with the PASD Method (Pedagogical Architectural Design of the Space).
The slideshow that follows is from a presentation of the topic in the Course "Pedagogical Organization of Space", that I teach at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
