Inspired by ArcHR, we’re bringing this human-centered, research-driven approach to learning environment design.
WHAT IS ARCEDU?
The short answer: education infused architecture.
WSA's response to that: Disruption. The premise of ArcEDU is to utilize all the research surrounding learning styles and methods to study users. We want to know the way they work, how they interact in groups, how they absorb information, etc. The days of form over function are over. It's time for space to reflect the students. What if you had a space that already took this research into account?
DID YOU KNOW?
There is a positive correlation between student performance and the condition of the built environment. Buildings assessed in good working condition produced student scores 17% higher.
WHAT MAKES AN ENVIRONMENT WORK?
Increased graduation rate
Increased student retention
Educator retention and engagement
ArcEDU is built around three actions.
User Patterns: We'll observe how students prefer to use space and assess existing conditions.
User Queries: We'll seek information from students and educators alike to match needs with spacial requirements.
Brand Translation: We'll conceptualize brand parameters and their impact on the designed environment.
The result? An environment that works.
