Title: Integrating the Latest Technology Inside and Out
Project: Tacoma, WA
Firm: Bruce Dees & Associates
Summary: The design of Baker Middle School provides a sustainable, maintainable, and technologically forward educational environment. Working closely with a 22-person broad-based planning committee, the design team facilitated the development of a list of primary guiding principles that informed the school and landscape design. The development of personalized learning environments was at the top of Baker’s design ethos. Sustainability was another guiding value, and Baker’s design and construction were infused with green elements.
