The third landscape, a space of indecision, fragility, unproductiveness, and of welcoming what is rejected as a metaphor for a healing and educating mission.

Learning spaces

The research proposes a concept of learning spaces that departs from the idea of a school as the sum of classrooms and extends beyond the educational dimension to the social context and the ability of an environment to influence the quality of relationships and consequently teaching.
