Germantown Academy

Fort Washington, PA

2016

For Germantown Academy, a private PreK-12 school in Pennsylvania, 1100 Architect designed the Beard Center for Innovation, a 21st century learning environment. Transforming what had been a little-used computer lab and a portion of the library, the design provides students and faculty with a flexible learning space comprised of two principle areas: an Innovation Lab and a Makerspace. Moveable partitions, custom-designed by 1100 Architect, allow the Innovation Lab to be configured in multiple ways, accommodating anything from individual study, small group collaboration, or larger events such as robotics competitions or lectures. The Makerspace complements other more traditional learning environments, providing a forum for students to test ideas through making and experimentation with technologies like 3D printing and laser-cutting.
