As a leader in K-12 design, our team is dedicated to designing school environments that inspire a modern, innovative approach to teaching and learning. The built environment can help support student wellbeing in so many ways, but just like learning styles, it is important to consider that it is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
In 2019, Bray established its INTERSECT Scholarship + Internship Program, in partnership with UW-Milwaukee graduate students, to research the intersection of architecture and educational environments. In its inaugural year, the program took a closer look at the relationship between classroom design and positive student outcomes.
INTERSECT Volume I, Classrooms: Where Pedagogy Meets Architecture examines six of our K-12 projects. The document explores how real-world design solutions are supported by evidence-based academic theories and aims to capture the possible design interventions – minor and major – that can be made to support a wide array of teaching and learning styles.
Stay tuned for our upcoming chapter series, which will delve into each of the six case studies over the next several weeks!
