Research-Inspired Design: Moving from Anecdote to Evidence

MLK Classroom
The design of high performance learning environments suggests a significant linkage between design and educational outcomes, but often these connections are only anecdotal. To help close the gap, several years ago, Perkins Eastman began evaluating the performance of its major school design projects. That exploration has progressively grown into studies that now encompass dozens of buildings across districts and involve multi-disciplinary teams of architectural and academic researchers. These studies have begun to inform design decisions, challenge design guidelines, and bolster district school construction funding requests.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how design projects can integrate design research
  • Learn how design research can challenge assumptions
  • Learn how engaging other disciplines can enhance our research capabilities
  • Learn how districts can support and leverage design research

Presenters:
Sean O’Donnell, FAIA LEED AP, Principal, Perkins Eastman & Co-Director, Consortium for Design and Education Outcomes
Karen Gioconda, Project Manager and Interior Designer, Perkins Eastman
