Lord, Aeck & Sargent has designed more than 3 million square feet of science and engineering education facilities, and we know the unique challenges and opportunities that this building type presents.
The facilities that best serve the emerging goals of science and engineering education must provide safe working environments, state-of-the-art support facilities, formal and informal interaction spaces and teaching spaces that incorporate the latest classroom technologies. Through our involvement as speakers and participants in national organizations focused on the future of science education, including Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL), we understand how the science curriculum is evolving into one that is problem-based, taught in a research-rich environment and keenly focused on the student-teacher relationship.
Our Clients value the ability of our facilities for science and engineering education to incorporate essential pedagogical issues such as sensitivity to campus context, integration of science curricula, fostering of interdisciplinary approaches, and creation of interactive environments to support student-student and student-teacher interaction. We consistently deliver facilities that engender a sense of excitement and vitality, and we create vibrant “communities” of science within a campus setting.
