Learning in and from Nature

Natural Clay as a building material for Educational Institutions

 

Air quality & learning environment – How is it linked?

Studies have shown that students and teachers spend around 30-50 percent of their time at school/college during the day. An educational institution as a built environment can create the right atmosphere to inspire learning.  

Several studies have established the necessity for better in-door air quality to optimally develop learning abilities of students.  Whereas, in some cases a poorly designed educational building can result in inadequate ventilation for its occupants. 

According to a research conducted in Austrian schools children’s learning ability and general health is affected by the quality of air within the class rooms. Healthy indoor air is a vital factor for the well-being, health, life and thus for high quality learning for the children.

How can green building materials aid in better indoor air quality in schools?

Using sustainable and natural building materials like Porotherm Blocks allow quality air circulation within closed rooms due its natural properties and excellent thermal insulation.
