Gollifer Langston Architects, winner of the RIBA Awards 2007, is an architectural studio for commercial, education, arts, media, residential and public design. The proposal for the Classroom of the Future was to create a prototype highly ICT resourced demountable “clip-on” classroom for use throughout Camden to optimize investment and availability to a wide group of school children.
It is now a fully transportable space that provides music and film making facilities to secondary children in Camden. The classroom arrives onsite as an enclosed box. Computer control systems activate hydraulic legs that position the container onto the ground, and allow sections of the wall and roof to expand and open.
