Educational Projects

Educational practices are undergoing a revolution, and campuses also are reflecting major changes. Buildings need to house interdisciplinary studies, not just a single function. All-purpose facilities accommodate multiple technologies such as an electronic library with wired cafeteria/study hall. Our designs for educational buildings are open-ended, allowing expansion. We think of interiors as “soft”, accomodating changes in response to evolving curriculum, while exterior shells are “hard”, featuring materials which can last over 50 years. Buildings can serve as links to exterior space or as focal points, generating activities around them.
