ArtLabPlus | A Digital Drop-In Studio for Teens!

Lynn Koh's insight:

"We support teens in building their own creative communities."

 

"The ARTLAB+ program is a free afterschool program where teens can socialize with friends; explore digital media and technical tools; and take workshops to develop their interests and skills. The overarching pedagogy used in programming is HOMAGO, which stands for hang out, mess around, and geek out. Using this pedagogical approach, Mentors encourage teens to explore their own interests, create their own learning trajectories, and foster their own values. ARTLAB+ strives to be a radically inclusive space, where teens can learn from each other’s differences in a welcoming and safe environment.

DOK Library Concept Center

Essentially the Delft Public Library (Holland), quite possibly the most amazing library I've ever seen. Certainly the most modern library in the world!

Creating social sites | Scandinavian Library Quarterly

Lynn Koh's insight:

Sello Library and Library 10 as 'social sites' for teens

 

"Sello is the name of a shopping centre in the municipality of Espoo in the metropolitan area, built for an urban lifestyle, with market squares, pedestrian and bicycle routes, cafés and shops. Sello is also a concert hall with four hundred seats and the spacious Sello Library. In Pointti (the Point) young patrons can borrow books, read, listen to music or use the computers. The Gamepoint area is, as the name indicates, designed for computer games and console games, here for instance Runescape can be played by up to twelve participants. In the digital music studio patrons can make their own CDs. At Yesbox youth leaders answer all possible and impossible questions.


Young patrons can also click into Habbo Hotel and create their own avatar and discuss with avatars chosen by youth leaders from the entire metropolitan area. Mobbing and game addiction are examples of talking points in Habbo Hotel’s netari.fi. About half of young patrons visiting the library have a foreign background. Sello Library is, in many senses, a welldesigned social site for young library patrons.

 

Library 10 in Helsinki is another example of a library that largely attracts young people. Library 10 (see article in SPLQ 4/2005) immediately became the city library’s most used location when it opened on April 1, 2005. The majority of patrons in this library are 20-30 year-olds and 60 % of the borrowers are – atypically enough young men.

 

To succeed in attracting young library patrons there should apparently be a conscious acclimatisation to the various demands of new lifestyles, an understanding of the special needs of this target group. A free-floating ambience with enough space for patrons’ own creativity seems to be essential. Doing things together, interactively."

Hamilton Grange Teen Center in New York by Rice+Lipka architects

Lynn Koh's insight:

"Contemporary renovations, designed by New York based Rice+Lipka architects, covered 4400 square feet and divided the space into multifunctional zones, which are alined by two main elements - the bamboo stepped bleacher area and a 7 meters diameter media vitrine.


The stepped bleacher provides visitors with a street view and at the same time works as a hub for live performances, screenings and hang-out area.


The vitrine is the cylindrical glazed media room which allows visitors to enjoy movies and interactive gaming such as Guitar hero and Wii. The loud noise inside the Media Vitrine doesn’t cause any outside distortion.


The teen center’s space also includes X-Bar computer zone, Highback Reading Lounge, Exam Study Niche, and a day-glo Snack & Chat Niche (a 1st time experimental break from the normal prohibitions), rolling L-bracket Lounge, and tiered book stacks."

Lynn Koh's insight:

"it’s new student center also known as“The Hub” attracts visitors with its modernism and simplicity,  well-chosen yellow, black and grey colors, practical and cozy nooks, and at the same time happy atmosphere. The center covers a surface area of 91,000 square feet with accommodation capacity of 1000 students at the same time. The friendly design of the place gives you the feeling of the home away from home and certainly dispels the stereotype of the student center with dull and dusty old books and cheap furniture. “The Hub” promises to its visitors the most convenient conditions as a student could need."

Lynn Koh's insight:

40 developmental assets for adolescents 

http://www.search-institute.org/content/40-developmental-assets-adolescents-ages-12-18

 

"Librarians, whose mission is to enrich the lives of their patrons, need to know: what makes for a happy and healthy teen? The Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets for Adolescents (ages 12-18) provides a prescription. Librarians reviewing this list will know which particular assets their programming can support. However, the assets I always quote when working with library building committees (especially the ones who don’t understand why the teen space needs room for a gladiator fighting ring, a rock concert, a fashion show or a sleepover) is that teens need at least three hours a week of recreational activity and three hours a week of creative activity in addition to at least three hours a week of reading for pleasure. There’s no better place to provide that support than in the public library." - extract from http://www.demcointeriors.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=425:empowering-teens-with-environments-that-cultivate-creativity&catid=71:library-insights&Itemid=123

Modern University Creative Center Interior Design by Supermachine Studio /  Home Trends | Decoration | Gardening | Teen space design | Scoop.it
Lynn Koh's insight:

"...two floors at one of Bangkok University’s new four-storey buildings designed by Bangkok-based 49 Group. Supermachine’s work includes a workshop, library, exhibition space, viewing room and office. The determining concept is encouragement of creativity, communication and experimentation. To achieve that, one of Supermachine’s solutions was the “Lo-Fi pixel wall” at the entrance which covered a 180 square-meter wall surface with 10,000 custom-made rotating four-sided plastic pieces with many colorful sides. Supermachine surrounds the internet centre with a space-ship like green pod that students can move around in the open space. Supermachine is currently working on the interiors for the university’s student lounge facility."


Too much colour though?

Lynn Koh's insight:

"Communities are also finally starting to build teen space to support teens because they recognize the benefits of [Search Institute’s] Asset Development, they want to give teens a sense of community involvement and belonging, and they want to build them a positive and safe environment for studying, socializing and recreational activities."
