SOM Education Lab

SOM Education Lab, a tightly focused core group of 45 designers, benefits from research and design initiatives that emerge from other design studios within SOM. Past projects include master plans, student centers, performing arts centers, classroom buildings, science and technology buildings, athletic centers, libraries, dormitories, faculty housing, and other education facilities.

A common theme joining these projects is an interest in creating highly effective learning environments by focusing on light, flexibility, program, and content. This brochure reviews a selection of SOM's recent work in campus planning, sports design, and primary, secondary, and higher education.
