SUSC2_HalkinPhotographs by HalkinFocusing the design on didactic opportunities, SMP Architects and the consultant team worked closely with the Germantown Friends School community to support student engagement in this laboratory for learning – within, around, and in some cases, on top of the facility. Embracing a “Science in Sight” vision for advancing sustainability through conversation and exploration, the design supports the school’s mission of lifelong learning and stewardship of the natural environment.
