Rather than requiring only the acquisition of facts, education as a field is gravitating towards an emphasis on acquiring learning skills—understanding how to get the information one needs, and knowing how to synthesize it and navigate complex situations.
FOCUS ON THE USERS
Our design approach assumes that diverse groups may have different educational design needs; in addition, adaptability and flexibility in the design of educational spaces is critical to allow spaces to adapt to the changes that are inevitable in learning, technology, and communities.
FOCUS ON TECHNOLOGY
Technology has also changed the way students learn and access information inside learning environments, with multi-disciplinary learning projects bringing students into the community more often, giving them a chance to experience how things work in the world outside of their campuses.
At Taylor Design we understand the need to manifest strong capabilities with regard to designing for education, and working with academic master-plans and strategic plans to design environments that maximize learning potentials.
