The first kind of space was highly organised. In these ‘class’ rooms, our students gathered, seated in rows, facing toward a single part of the space – the front. At the front of the classroom were all of the important things, such as the teacher, and of course, the teacher’s tools.

The students looked on as spectators, and occasionally as participants in their education.
