What Is Spatialosophy™?

Spatialosophy™ is an intentional approach to the planning and design of learning spaces that: cultivate social-emotional competencies; encourage equity & inclusion; and, generate experiences of wonder.


The method, which applies spatial & design thinking philosophies, incorporates six fundamental components:

  1. setting;
  2. practice;
  3. alignment;
  4. culture;
  5. engagement;
  6. and, social-emotional.

While the process does place attention on aesthetics, Spatialosophy™ also focuses on the goals and functions of a learning space, which provides a specific way of looking and envisioning possibilities for creating diverse, inclusive, safe & supportive learning communities where students and educators thrive.
