The V&A approached Dubloon with an open brief to design a new learning environment for the series of workshops they run called: The V&A Samsung Digital Classroom.
With the rise of learning through digital devices the classroom can become a far more flexible space allowing the physical environment to be redesigned to best aid creative thinking and learning. Dubloon developed a structure that can be quickly and easily assembled that defines a space with little restriction. An open learning environment taking place within the galleries of the V&A to immerse teaching, learning and inspiration in the same physical environment. This provides an exciting space for the workshops to take place
amongst the exhibits, so that participants are able to use them as reference, inspiration or directly within their work using 3D scanning and other forms of technology.
The V&A Samsung Digital Classroom is an ongoing programme of workshops for 16-19 year olds. Its provides insight into certain creative industries and opens the discussion about future careers by having leading designers teach emerging creative digital technologies. The programme ranges from topics such as projection mapping, virtual reality, 3D printed jewellery and digital animation among others.
