This week I spoke with Neenan Architect David Kurtz about Engaging Students to Design their Sustainable Future. At the Alamosa Schools in Colorado, uncertainty about who to hire for a playground consultant turned into a design-research project for students. Their presentations to playground bidders resulted in an active design for all grade levels. We also spoke about putting students on the new school construction board in Monte Vista, CO, and how architects can be involved in creating sustainable curricula through building and site design.
