Good design is always contextual. Additions as well as new buildings
must be sensitive to their surroundings, and nowhere is this more
important than on school grounds. Whether a campus holds one or
a dozen buildings, a school must provide physical environs that
reflect its sense of community and purpose. In addition to serving
current students, school design requires foresight and flexibility
to prepare for future changes in enrollment, curriculum and technology.
Master planning creates a cohesive campus in which buildings, vehicular
circulation and open space work together rather than evolving in
patchwork fashion as short-term problems and solutions arise.
