|Transition from the industrial to the information society calls for a new kind of learning. Outstanding potentials for this exist in urban communities, where there is a concentration of both formal and informal educational facilities for children, youths, and adults; these must be developed. Urban space and the architecture of educational institutions can create inviting, encouraging, and inspiring settings in which to learn. The International Building Exhibition Hamburg adopts such contexts as a working emphasis within the framework of its key theme COSMOPOLIS. Volume 3 in the METROPOLIS: series enquires after the new city of the information society and its need for innovative “pedagogic architecture,” and also presents examples of reformative intervention for discussion.
