3/8/19  Congratulations to CannonDesign Chicago and INVISION Architecture of Des Moines for their selection as the winner of the 2019 Learn by Design competition at the SXSWedu Conference in Austin, Texas.

My role was to develop and employ strategic ethnography techniques that gave us the right information about the community and its desire to develop a new type of student learning experience so that we could develop the right design.
