Bahá'í Centre of Learning

Hobart's Bahá'í Centre of Learning is, of course, a very spiritual place, but also a very clever learning space.

It is a hugely green building, but (perhaps unusually) this does not get in the way of the learning inside - the large central space with filtered sunlight, stunning voice acoustics and a host of playful little break-out spaces lends itself to learning for all, from the youngest (who love little details like the jigsaw block floor) to the 200 or so teachers whose company I enjoyed there for two days.

This little detail is indicative: a semi enclosed circualr space, with wrapping projector and screen and great acoistics (sound is beamed firmly down not not outwards) makes a wonderful space to provoke, debate, reflect and learn.

So much more detailing - see http://www.tasbcl.com.au/ for more details.
