Title: Permeable education
Author: Becker, Catherine
Abstract: This thesis, Permeable Education, provides insight into the impact that permeable architecture has on the culture in a community when applied in educational spaces. The typology, a 230,000 square foot Center for Learning in Milwaukee, WI, looks to utilize permeable architecture to increase access to life skills education in a community. The project is justified in that students have a desire for knowledge that will be relevant to them after their formal education is over. By making this type of education open to a larger demographic, a greater influence will be had on the surrounding community and their desire to learn. The Park West Center for Learning functions as a 9-12 high school as well as a community learning center with access to traditional education settings, skills labs and shared community space. Research for this thesis will utilize a mixed method approach throughout the academic year and will be documented throughout that time for future use.
