Summary

Learning centers are only successful if they empower the individuals who will use them. Cutting-edge tech and branded environments are great, but schools must strategically respond to the unique needs, opportunities and challenges of their students and communities. Successful learning spaces need to consider population data, economic conditions, job forecasting, health outcomes, public transit, sustainability, the list goes on. With a look at recent efforts in Chicago, Orlando and Brownsville, TX this presentation reveals how multi-disciplinary design thinking can deliver schools that shape our future leaders while improving health, advancing socioeconomic conditions and strengthening cities.
