Project: Kent County Schools
Designed by Gensler
As part of a nationwide education overhaul, Gensler partnered with the county of Kent to redesign 150 failing schools around the county's new pedagogical model, which focuses on the individual learner. Gensler's analysis of the current schools included providing children with disposable cameras to photograph what they didn't like about their schools. The design prototype recaptures and refocuses space to facilitate both personalized and collaborative learning processes. Each school will be a place of civic pride and gathering for children and grown ups alike.
