TODAY'S CONTEXT

The challenges schools face today are more complex than ever.

Instruction is no longer one-size-fits-all. Physical space must flex to accommodate a range of learning modalities. The stories we tell about our communities must cut through an increasing amount of noise. And more often than not our challenges are interconnected, making it difficult to solve one without considering others.

We've designed Form & Faculty to respond to this complexity in a way no other firm can.

WE DESIGN ACROSS DISCIPLINES.
It’s no longer viable to focus on one discipline, or even one at a time. We not only design communication, instruction, and space, we design how they intersect.
WE'RE FOCUSED ON LEARNING.
Rather than working with a broad range of clientele, we work exclusively with clients invested in learning, giving us unusually deep levels of expertise.
WE UNDERSTAND YOU.
We recognize that no two challenges are alike. Our bespoke solutions respond to your specific needs, intended outcomes, and budget.
WE HOLD HIGH STANDARDS.
Form & Faculty has held Certified B-Corporation status since 2012, meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.

Our process is based in design thinking, a human-centered approach to problem solving.
