In Session: Fall 2023

Time for Recess!


This year, let’s meet the students where they want to be – RECESS! In this issue, we jump into the sandbox, exploring how design can create space for education and play in the school environment.

We break down barriers in athletic facilities so students of all abilities can participate. Sports field improvements can be a challenge in a complex campus setting; we share examples of overcoming difficult site constraints.

The lines between education and play blur as we create immersive learning environments for cybersecurity curricula and Purposeful Play spaces to develop cognitive, social, emotional, and communication skills. Finally, it’s our turn to play in the tech landscape as we give our take on AI and its role in education and design.

School’s In Session

It’s easy to rest on the expertise acquired in over 30 years of design for K-12.  We’ve completed over $800 million in Capital Projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two.

However, we believe experience alone isn’t enough to add real value to our clients. Just as our industry and business has evolved, so has education.  The science of learning has advanced, and so too must our classrooms.

In Session is an awareness that for us, school is always in session. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.  We spend time researching the questions and issues facing our clients and share what we learn here with you.
