The Time is Now...
At no other time in recent memories have the opportunities in school design presented such a rich context for educators and architects to explore linking curriculum and design in support of authentically engaging learners.
Through dialogue regarding district's pedagogy, architects can then, only begin to explore a design response to a problem. This basis for our creativity ensures that our designs will be based on fact with the goal of creating transformative learning spaces that allow students and teachers the ability to support various learning styles.
These transformative learning spaces have the ability to facilitate various instructional settings, allowing two students to collaborate within a class; the spaces may also be physically manipulated, allowing three classes to conduct inter-classroom research and reporting.
Influencers such as House Bill 5, the need to produce job ready graduates, and technology developments will further facilitate this investigation of curriculum and design response.
