Design for Education, part of the Gensler Monograph Series, is a richly illustrated volume and timely survey of modern learning environments--from universities to primary schools. With 17 case studies presenting design innovations and place-making solutions for a diverse range of clients, Design for Education: focuses on education's need for facilities that effectively support learning and accommodate growth and change; addresses real estate and facility trends and challenges for K-12 schools, colleges, and universities; provides case studies that explore the institution's goals for the project and how they are met; explores creative alternatives such as building repositioning and the development of multipurpose, 24/7 facilities; and underscores the importance of sustainability in school design and how to achieve it.
