Insight Architects PCInsight Architects PC Contact: Vincent Ciccarelli
Insight Architects is helping schools design facilities for the next generation. These schools are vibrant, energetic environments that emphasize personalization, multiple modes of learning, personal responsibility and achievement while avoiding an atmosphere of mass produced education.
We believe that school design should be based on three general ideas: (1) learning is a lifelong process; (2) design is always evolving; and (3) resources are limited. With these ideals in mind, we are creating environments that enhance teaching and learning, accommodate the needs of all learners, provide for health, safety, and security, make effective use of available resources and are flexible and adaptable.
