studioTECHNE joined Feilding Nair International to work with Magnificat High School on their Surround Leaning Center. This term invented by Sister Helen Jean Novy, is a concept that connects the physical environment, new learning methodologies, and information and communication technologies for creating a holistic and enriched learning experience.
Taking spaces original to the 1970’s construction of the school, our firms worked to redesign these spaces is to create a seamless environment between learning and the physical space. To begin the process, a series of immersive Discovery Workshops were held which engaged students, faculty, parents, and community members to collectively explore concepts and ideas for the Project. These workshops were followed by design workshops and finally, implementation. Phase I was completed August 2012, Phase II was completed August 2013.
