Schools and families are jumping into the new academic year across the country! With many Puget Sound area schools opening in a distance learning model this fall, our designers are exploring options for outdoor education to balance children’s expanded on-screen time, and strengthen programmatic and operational resilience as future re-occupation of learning facilities occurs. What are some strategies that your campus or family are testing out? Share your thoughts and stay tuned for ideas from our community. Shown in this photo is the central stair at Blakely Elementary School on Bainbridge Island. 📷: @k7scott

The community’s residential spaces are anchored by the Exchange, a dynamic student resource center with multi-purpose amenity and gathering spaces, university offices and support programs to promote health and wellness. This facility activates the campus edge and defines a welcoming gateway and public plaza for special events like farmers markets, concerts, graduate student lectures and art installations.

Design-build Done Right. The John W. Walstrum Center for Advanced Manufacturing Technology co-locates manufacturing-related programs and workforce development activities in a signature, state-of-the-art facility that serves as a magnet for students, teachers and industry partners. Located at the main entry to campus, the Walstrum Center is a gateway to the college and applied technology education—putting the college’s mission and programs on display.
