Education Design

Our passion for supporting the education of each new generation is woven into every learning environment we design. Whether for k-12, university, or community college students, our education designers take the concepts we’re implementing across markets and create compatible, cutting-edge facilities that support hands-on exploratory learning. Our goal is not simply to provide buildings where students learn, but to create environments that inspire the freedom to dream big and achieve future success.

Cushing Terrell was founded in 1938 with a focus on education design, and over those 80-plus years, we’ve helped our education clients meet the needs of the ever-evolving student. Alongside our clients, we’ve stepped outside the realm of traditional education design to innovate and adapt, just as the world of learning continues to change.

Today, we leverage an approach our team calls the “Ecology of Education.” Through this lens, we study how students interact with each other; how they interact with teachers, support staff, and administrators; and how all these groups interact with and within their environments. As architects and engineers, we view our role as your partners in designing learning environments, continually developing a deeper understanding of the interactions within schools so our designs can better accommodate the needs of everyone within them.
