ABOUT

LOOP.bz is a small business and part of a big global network of experts. We choose to work in a network structure because it helps the development of knowledge, projects and expertise. Rather than a static team working on the same tasks, our collaborators are involved with other projects and other teams. We all bring inspiration from the work we are doing in other projects to the task we are working on together.

 

LOOP.bz is part of several international networks concerned with the development of the physical and social aspect of educational environments. Today LOOP.bz is managed by Mie Guldbæk Brøns.

is an educational anthropologist with a background in teaching and managing child care services. She works as an independent researcher and a consultant in how to use and develop innovative learning environments.

For the last 11 years she has been researching the relationship between physical spaces and social behaviour, mainly in educational environments. Her research primarily focuses on teachers' collaboration and how it is influenced by and influences the physical space(s) it takes place in. Her observations often take place in innovative learning environments that have an emphasis on 21st Century learning. Mie studies and visits schools globally looking at the connection between spaces and pedagogical approaches.

MIE GULDBÆK BRØNS

LOOP.bz was founded in 2010 by Jens Guldbæk and Mie Guldbæk Brøns with one leg in architecture and the other in pedagogy. A decade of intense international research of school cultures and development contributed to LOOP.bz moving away from understanding educational environments through the lens of two professions (architecture and pedagogy). Today we exist in the new knowledge that has emerged from working in the gap of the professions for so long. A position from where it is natural to understand how the pedagogy, space, organisation and culture co-develop. As professionals in this field we are trained to observe and understand the connections, entanglements and interdependencies in learning spaces and educational environments.
