Michael Kmak and Katie LaCourt to Join Panel Discussion and Q&A on Kirkland Ranch Academy of Innovation

Michael and Katie will join design leaders to discuss the process of designing school environments to support the overall wellness of students.

As we aim to emerge from school closures caused by the pandemic, we’re reimagining in-person learning environments that support the developmental needs of all students. We know schools must deliver high-quality education as well as support students in establishing healthy life habits that promote physical and emotional health. But how do the public and private sectors collaborate to create truly equitable spaces that support holistic wellness in schools?

This virtual webinar — hosted by AIA Virginia and AIA Northern Virginia — will feature an abbreviated viewing of the video “The Whole Child: Health and Wellness,” followed by a panel discussion and live Q&A focused on our exciting work at the new Kirkland Ranch Academy of Innovation in Land o’ Lakes, FL. CannonDesign is working in partnership with Hepner Architects on the project.

Michael and Katie will join Dina Sorenson of d.studio and Angela Spangler of International WELL Building Institute to discuss their insight on how to serve students and the community through design.
