Tiivistelmä

How to redesign an under-used secondary space into a lively social and informal learning space? Here, three case studies are compared to shed on light what spatial elements create a Place for learning. At many university premises informal learning spaces are often limited to libraries and social interactions to cafés. However, secondary spaces, such as halls and corridors, which are located in popular areas on campuses, have great potential when redesigned into novel social and informal learning spaces, which increases the efficiency of the spaces, too. The cases differ in design and development manners: two novel learning spaces created in a lobby, a renovation of a campus café and co-created learning spaces in an academic library. The cases offer practical implications and elements on how to create new learning spaces successfully. Common for all these cases is the positive feedback produced by a pleasant, uplifted environment. These realized cases suggest that relatively small, acupuncture-like changes to existing spaces can create a relatively big impact.
