Creating a Social Framework: A Call to Action through Data-Driven Parameters
Register here to join DLR Group and your international A4LE colleagues to discuss how we can address a post-COVID world through a design framework that can be rapidly prototyped to addresses diverse global needs. Together, we will explore topics such as the social and virtual realities that will shape academic, social, and emotional advancements for students within an architectural context, and consider how and what criteria can best be blended to leverage return on investment.
Hosting this series will be DLR Group Senior Principal Jim French, FAIA, DLR Group Senior Associate Bonnie Sanborn, and DLR Group Principal Pam Loeffelman, FAIA. Along with guest panelists from the world of education, each session will feature a 30-minute presentation followed by an interactive, 30-minute dialogue.

The approved industry standards are a great example of the milestones we have to achieve in order to develop new facilities.” In this session, the panel will dive into the Educational Facility Master Plan that’s informing the proposal of modernized and new construction in U.S. Virgin Islands Public Schools over the long-term to provide 21st-century learning environments for students.
