Designs for tomorrow’s students must support the key aspects of 21st century learning.
Collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem solving are important drivers requiring spaces that are both flexible and technology rich. Today’s students are more self directed and often engage in study outside the classroom. At Pond, we understand the importance of both the academic and social aspects of the collegiate experience and recognize that the experience extends well beyond the classroom. Often times, it’s the spaces “in-between” truly make a campus.
Our education team brings a holistic, transparent and inclusive approach to design, teaming the strengths of architecture and engineering disciplines in-house. This value-added approach, enables us to offer a heightened level of responsiveness and coordination. Our diverse portfolio illustrates expertise in a variety of campus and learning environments, inclusive of academic and research buildings, workforce development training facilities, student unions and dining halls and sustainable landscapes.
As your trusted advisor, our goal is to bring your vision to reality. We couple leadership in consensus building with practical, technological expertise to bring responsible, enduring and inspiring design solutions to our academic clientele.
