Transforming the industry with evidence based design

The SBID Education Council puts effective design at the core of the learning process. Their aim is to raise awareness in showing how evidence-based interior design decisions can transform the learning experience for everyone.

Education design covers all aspects of learning from Nursery schools and Universities to Libraries and Museums. The design of a core learning space can positively inspire, motivate and encourage creativity within the learning process.

From news articles, journals and Q&As to live talks, debates and seminars, the SBID education council provides expert guidance, inspiration and accuracy as well as helping each designer to improve their standards of practice.
