Project Selection in Design Studio Absence of Learning Environments

Project selection is an essential matter of design teaching. Based on observations of a specifi c curriculum, the author claims that a wide repertoire of subjects including offi ces, restaurants, hotels, and other public places are used to prepare design students, but that schools and other "learning environments/schools" are similarly ignored. Considering this, the study unfolds reasons why interior design studios do not assign "learning environments" as design projects. Moreover, it analyzes a specifi c learning environment, in terms of its considerable scope and adequate complexity, as a design problem.
