Unbind the School Education shapes society and society’s social-political issues influence education. By taking an extreme case of a Post-Soviet neighbourhood in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, I analyze how the monotonous school buildings in these mono-functional parts of the city can be spatially freed from leftovers of the Soviet system. How can these school […]
