Introducing School Design Matters
I am starting the Blog: "School Design Matters" to further the discussion of what school design can do to enhance teaching and learning. I am an architect and planner who has been planning and designing schools for the last 25 years. Over that time I have seen the design quality of schools improve significantly, while planning concepts for schools have hardly changed at all. Now I am focused on thinking and writing about the forces that prevent change, and also those that may drive change in the future. I hope you will comment on what you see here and become engaged in a discussion that raises awareness about how school environments affect learning.
