Parallel Curriculum: (Non)Spaces of Learning is a reader/poster comprising essays, papers mixed with original writing that all analyze and question the norms of education to produce speculative scenarios for the spaces of study.
The reader folds from A4 to A3 to reveal more content and ends as an A2 poster to highlight the transformation of "space". Bell Centennial by Matthew Carter from 1978 was used as both text and display typeface. This particular typeface was designed for optimized legibility for early phone books with the intention of accomodating the absolute maximum character count on a single page. This results in a design that ties nicely with a notion from the research: The learning space is not only a classroom to fill with students and create a form of hierarchy but extends outward into both the physical and digital spaces of various kind.
The illustrations were made of cardboard cutouts and showed different chair placements in relation to eachother to question the idea and beneficiality of authority within a learning space. The reader was printed in silkscreen in an edition of 100.
