We believe that good design is born not only from aesthetic imperatives, but from an intensive engagement of ideas, drawing from other fields, listening to and interpreting a client’s needs in built form. By immersing ourselves in the Nueva School’s specific character - one attuned to an interdisciplinary, learner-centered curriculum; committed to community engagement, technology, and environmental sustainability; and focused on social-emotional development at its core - we have come to understand broader principles about school design in the 21st century. We continue to learn and apply this knowledge in all our work.
