Introduction:
Teacher Training School, Bilbao (University of the Basque Country, Spain www.ehu.es ) is a center for teacher training of Primary Education with approximately 2000 students. In 2011 moved to a new building. The building has an open layout with large central spaces that connect classrooms, offices and other rooms. This new reality has meant a dramatic change for a teaching community used to a much smaller building in which classrooms, offices and even persons were more at hand. The larger dimensions of the new buildings have opened new possibilities and brought more comfort but also, more distance among members of the teaching community.

Methodology:
After the initial confusion, the disciplines of artistic expression see this new reality as an opportunity to more forward in the development and improvement of their educational activity. Large empty spaces of the building generate novel contexts that require new ways of understanding and living space. On this basis, the Department of Didactics of Musical, Plastic and Corporal Expression has launched a research project to explore the new possibilities of meeting and learning construction offered by these new common spaces.

Project Objective:
The first phase has taken place during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 courses and aims to:
1. Promote the interaction of students with the space based on sensory experience.
2. Boost collaborative artistic (visual and musical) interventions of students in the central areas of the building.
3. Encourage networking between different areas of knowledge at the School of Education, with the central areas of the School as a link, common space and stimulus for interdisciplinarity.
4. Investigate the impact of performing art activities on the central space of the School.

The activities carried out include occupying this space and exploring its sonic possibilities by making rhythmic sound effects generated at the very space. Additionally, plastic sonic installations have also been placed.

Results:
Preliminary results obtained so far, suggest that the artistic interventions in public spaces encourage:
1. Cooperation among different members of the educational community,
2. Their identification with the living space and the awareness of sensory experience.

These activities have also served to highlight the poor acoustic properties of the new building and contribute to put forward possible solutions in this regard.
