Citti Academy Conceptual Design named a finalist in SXSWedu design program

A conceptual design of Citti Academy's re-imagined classrooms was named a finalist in SXSWedu's Learning By Design program. 

As part of the annual SXSWedu Conference & Festival, the Learn by Design encourages designers and educators to work together to discover design-based solutions to challenges within education.

Learn by Design, hosted by SHP, is a new program focused on the design of physical learning spaces and how they have the potential to impact learning outcomes. The program is centered around a design competition showcasing projects in three distinct categories that all address the creation and implementation of physical learning spaces. 

Our Concept

Citti Academy: Developing Collective Intelligence

Presenters: Mariana Lavezzo & Martyne Tolber
Los Angeles, CA

The Citti Academy supports the facilitation of multiple learning styles. Learning Pods and Advisory Clusters with a 1:20 or 2:40 teacher to student ratio will replace traditional classrooms. Seminar rooms, Small Group Rooms and All School Gathering Commons with distributed Media Resource Centers will provide flexibility now and in the future.
