dc.description.abstractThis study is focused on what architectural contribution can be made to existing learning environments by integrating green spaces within primary schools. In pursuit of quality education, alternative methods of teaching and learning that use the natural environment is explored. The literature explored is underpinned by educational and architectural theories that present an argument for learning through experience of place as a means of improving the teaching and learning environment. Existing primary schools in Durban do not provide opportunities for learning within and from the natural environment; therefore, this study is orientated towards countering this. The research presented informs the design for an alternate primary school in Durban which aims at expanding the traditional learning environment from the confines of built classroom spaces to the outdoor natural environment.en_US
