The Vittra school offers a unique take on educational architectural structures. It does away with traditional classrooms for an open concept space that encourages socialization and learning in a more engaging environment. Like one big playground, the Vittra school is filled with colorful, abstract furniture that stimulates creativity and imagination.

Designed by Danish studio Rosan Bosch, the Vittra school is located in Telefonplan, Stockholm. Since there are no classroom divisions, a press release explains that students are taught "in groups according to level based on the school’s pedagogical principles… [These] approaches create different types of learning and teaching situations." Different stations are set up for reading, relaxing and even watching films. The Vittra school has also decided to emphasize digital media, assigning children to individual laptops in large or small groups. Stats for Classroom-Free Academies Trending: Older & Buzzing
