Igniting Connections that Enrich Our World

Great educational experiences elevate humankind and empower us to change the world. At the root of these experiences are connections — between people, technology, nature and ideas. We work alongside students, educators and administrators to plan and design spaces that cultivate these connections. We create educational spaces that are uniquely mission-driven and connected to their communities and the world at large.

Working Across the Education Spectrum

We’ve designed a vast array of spaces for all learners, from pre-kindergarten through school and university. Our portfolio includes constructed and renovated facilities of various sizes, scope and pedagogy. These spaces support new and emerging models as they relate to teaching, research and administration.

Designing With the Student at the Centre

No matter the scale, our focus is always on the student. We design facilities that put their personal, social and learning experiences at the heart every design decision. Our education team has helped create some of the most innovative student spaces in the world. We’ve created a building that doubles as the sustainability curriculum. We’ve envisioned how a journalism school can become a “teaching hospital.” We’re exploring how virtual and augmented reality will dramatically change the student experience. And we’re committed to putting the next generation at the forefront when designing education spaces for the future.
