Design learning environments to integrate physical activity, movement, and nature into the daily routine of students providing nudges to make fitness a lifelong and enjoyable habit.

Support multiple active programs to occur simultaneously within the programmatic space.

Activities include individual and small group active learning; health education and fitness programs.

The Ed Specs serve to illustrate concepts that will inform the master plans based on OUSD's aspirations to the audience of future architects who will implement them as well as for OUSD stakeholders to understand the reasoning behind modernizations.

Views of Nature

Are there views of nature and daylight to support mental wellness? If there are no views, is the design referencing nature (biophilic design)?


Are there multi-modal spaces that support outdoor play, learning, fitness, and sports activities?

Dispersed Fitness

Furniture and equipment can be used to encourage movement, consider a circuit trail with fitness stations along the way. Easy access with dispersed locations throughout the campus ensures access to more people throughout the day.
