Our work on San Diego State Universities Maya Hall is featured on and discusses the influence that design has on learning and behavior. In a world where information is quickly and easily accessible it is impossible not to have an impact on our youth. In turn, this has created the need to design school and university buildings to enable positive and creative thinking. We have achieved this in the design of Maya Hall.

"We want to reduce the negative environmental impacts associated with and contributing to mental illness…then why not start with what we can control? Great school facility design does not have to equate to costing more money. Great design that goes outside the box, thinking differently and innovatively is responsible practice to protect people, invest in our youth, and restore a better world."

- Erin Jennings, Associate Partner at KrM Architecture
