The phrase "informal learning space" implies agility. Informal learning spaces must be multi-purpose and support multiple group interactions.
Informal learning spaces serve as the social hub of activity for students and faculty throughout campuses. Most often these spaces are created in conjunction with cafes and lounges.
The very nature of informal learning spaces requires a stimulating environment. Such spaces are not governed by time or specific functions, and attracting students and faculty means the space must appeal to them.
Because of the evolving nature of the informal learning space, incorporating elements of sustainable design creates an environment that is productive, creative, and innovative.
