EDsession Program & Schedule

Resuscitating Educational Facilities for Innovative Learning

  • Date:Wednesday, November 3
  • Time:1:00 PM - 1:20 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: With creative design and programming, under-utilized educational buildings from all eras can be transformed into sustainable, thriving, innovative learning environments that align with future and current needs. School planners and steering committees are tasked with creating learning environments, moving towards carbon neutrality, and repairing building that near the end of their useful lives. Transformative reuse addresses these issues. K-12 schools, colleges and universities have many outdated, underutilized facilities. Rather than replacing them, more design teams and school administrators are considering the benefit of transformative reuse that create spaces for today's learners and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
