The latest episode (No. 42): “How Design Transformed a School​.”

Here’s more from the Design is Everywhere team:

How does the design of a space lead to success in educational settings?​

In this episode, Sam is joined by Taryn Kinney, a principal at DLR Group, to learn how space can influence a student’s educational success. What are the different phases of learning? And how can space affect those phases? Taryn brings her architecture background and education in Organizational Psychology to make the design of schools better for the student and the educator. Later on in the show, they are joined by Phillip Nowlin, principal at Canyon View High School, to learn how he and Taryn collaborated on the design of the school. Phillip describes the look, feel and energy of Canyon View High School, and how educators can use design to make a difference in learning.
