Bruce Jilk, conference chairman for the American Institute of Architects' Committee on Architecture for Education Fall Meeting (Amsterdam, Netherlands, November 7-10, 2000) provides his views on the future of schools, school/community integration, and shared spaces with surrounding businesses. Mr. Jilk comments on Finland's Heinavaara Elementary School and the future of "have-not" urban schools. Also examined are the meaning of learning, classroom size, consciousness in learning, and the architect's role in educational leadership. Discussions on facility flexibility, risks of innovation, and the impact of the environment on learning are included. William DeJong provides a counterpoint. (Contains 21 references.) (GR)
