SA, Jauri dos Santos. Josep Goday and Spanish school furniture during the first half of the 20th Century. Hist. Educ. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.46, pp.187-199. ISSN 2236-3459.

The present paper presents some systematic reflections on the history of Spanish school furniture, focusing on the proposals idealized by architect Josep Goday i Casals. Inserted in the field of study of educational patrimony, it seeks to see school furniture as an authentic source to investigate the material culture of the school. The methodological basis of the analysis is situated in the field of exploratory research, and is done in the form of research on literature. Data is obtained from the collection of the Ramon Llull Center of Infant and Elementary Education (Centro de Educação Infantil e Primária Ramon Llull) and in the work Josep Goday Casals: arquitectura escolar a Barcelona de la Mancomunitat a la república (2008). In the conclusions the role played by architect Goday is emphasized, as a protagonist in the configuration of furniture that tries to dignify the classroom, besides the architectural and esthetic aspects.

Keywords : material culture of the school; school architecture; school furniture; Josep Goday.
