Here is Foster High’s amazing choir teacher Melissa Albert meeting with BLRB architects today. Project leaders have been gathering extensive input from educators and students at Foster in one of the most important parts of the pre-design process. They will compile all of their learning into education specifications—parameters that guide the architect in designing a building to support specific educational programs, learning goals, and logistical necessities.
