Urban planning is rarely seen as a remedy for the state of the education system. However, thoughtful community design that integrates schools in new ways can lead to successful learning environments and vibrant communities.

How do you define inclusive design? On the blog, we've posted a video that explores the process of designing a hospital for all, using the recently opened Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital as an example.

Toxicants are a persistent problem in people's day-to-day, whether they know it or not.

Stick 'em up! On our blog, we look at the examples of follies in both architecture and film, finding that these whimsical diversions can make a good work great (and a lot more fun).

At Perkins+Will, we tend to “make every day Earth Day." That said, we spent some extra time last week reflecting on how we could further improve our impact on the planet. Take a look at how our offices across the world celebrated the environment this Earth Day. What did you do to celebrate the occasion? http://bit.ly/187UGic
