Evolving design innovation for the new pedagogical paradigm: Known for an outstanding portfolio of very recent successful higher education projects throughout the region, Method Studio synthesizes practical building elements with high design to create learning spaces as marvelous as they are functional, flexible, and future-ready.  We love to surpass our last best project with our next even better design. It’s part of the process.

Mindfulness of the order of operations for success: Higher education projects require a keen eye on the academic calendar to ensure the safety, feasibility, and success of the project. Our deep experience leading successful higher ed projects with the minimal disruption to students, faculty, and campus facilities will inform thoughtful design and project management decisions.

Deep connection to Utah students’ aspirations: We’ve built our reputation by designing for Utah’s students based on personal understanding of their challenges and strengths.  This includes a lively awareness that learning is active; that students bring a base of information to their educational experience. Our designs must connect them: to their instructors, to the natural world, to each other, and to the tools they need to grow their understanding.  We do this visually, technologically, aesthetically, and practically.
