Minneapolis Architectural Firm Forms Key Association That Will Translate Educational Theory Into Effective School Designs.
Lackney holds both Bachelor and Masters of Architecture degrees and recently earned a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin School of Architecture and Urban Planning. His practice-based research focuses on the relationship between educational outcomes, environmental quality and architectural design and management of educational facilities.
"The HGA Educational Design Group has long been considered a research-based practice," said Bartlett J. Baker, HGA vice president. "Our association with Dr. Lackney comes at a time when schools districts nationwide are building new facilities or renovating existing ones. Designing effective learning environments must be a priority. By strengthening our educational planning capabilities we hope to spread the word that the environment in which a student is taught greatly impacts the quality of the child's learning experience."
The HGA Educational Design Group offers full-service planning, programming and design services. Recent projects include the School of Environmental Studies at the Minnesota Zoo, Apple Valley, Minnesota; Chaska High School, Chaska, Minnesota; Heritage and Woodside High Schools, Newport News, Virginia; Century High School, Rochester, Minnesota; Barton Elementary School, Minneapolis, Minnesota; Monticello High School, Charlottesville, Virginia; Kennewick High School, Kennewick, Washington; University of Minnesota multiple projects, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and a prototype K-12 school design for Kingdom Schools, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
