Children are our future; there is no doubt about that. The political and social systems are based on the exchange of generations; the middle generation is raising the young ones and working for the elders. We put so much hope and expectations in the young ones, but do we provide them with the tools and opportunities they need to achieve our goals? I believe that the answer is no; there is so much more that can be done to further the children’s ability to develop and learn and to make the learning process more efficient while satisfying our expectations. This raises many questions about our really complicated nature, questions which politicians, psychologists and teachers are already trying to answer for decades. How to raise our children more efficiently without cutting into their playtime? What would happen if we involved design and architecture into the education process? Is it possible to create a more intelligent, interactive and stimulating environment for children to grow up in?
