26 Ultra Modern Education Facilities

From Dorms You Can Climb to Glowing Libraries

— December 8, 2009 — Art & Design
Get ready to toss out those stereotypes of student housing, because these ultra modern education facilities include everything from superdomes for students to student housing with rock climbing walls on the outside! We've also included entire campuses we thought are cutting edge, be it for their avant-garde interior designs or their unique architecture.

Implications - Today's educational facilities aren't standard brick buildings; instead, they boast avant-garde architecture, vibrant exterior facades and unusual playgrounds to inspire students and stimulate their creativity. Companies can take advantage of this phenomenon by infusing workspaces, lunch areas and other public office areas with whimsical cues to incentivize employees to unwind between meetings and during downtime.
