Form & Faculty worked with architectural design firm Parkhill, Smith & Cooper, to design 20 interventions that connect school community, physical space, and curriculum in a project-based elementary school.
The school’s identity system is rooted in a desire to develop global citizens. Sections of the school are designed to represent the seven different continents.The learning interventions are designed to reflect the school’s commitment to P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning, The Buck Institute’s Gold Standard PBL guide, VIF International’s Global Competence Indicators, and elementary grade level Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
In addition, we developed a curriculum framework that assists teachers in building inquiry-driven lesson plans around these interventions.
