Skolor i Filippinerna sett ur ett arkitektoniskt perspektiv : En studie om vikten av klassrummets fysiska miljö och möjliga förbättringar för en bättre läromiljö (Swedish)
The physical environment in schools is an important factor that benefits the educational quality and has an essential role in the student's learning process. In the Philippines the physical environment is underdeveloped in the schools, since the main focus is on developing a basic foundation and on making sure that every child can go to school. This thesis studied the classrooms' physical environment in three selected schools in the Philippines. It presents improvements of the classroom’s physical environment. This study can be used as indicative guidelines when designing classrooms in the Philippines.
This study is supported by the Minor Field Study scholarship, founded by SIDA.
