The 21st Century has brought rapid evolution in teaching and learning, supplementing traditional lecture with more interactive and experiential modes of communication. While technology continues to speed these changes, our work focuses on human beings – who teach, learn, work and play in the buildings we design. We study the geometry of human interaction, and we understand how the visual and acoustical landscape of any space can reinforce or interrupt attention. Each school and department has its own approach to teaching, so we listen carefully and ask questions, to bring ideas that fit. Our broad range of academic work includes everything from formal lecture halls to intimate study areas, and from active learning environments to small group seminar spaces.
