Whittle School and Studios
Whittle School and Studios is an educational organisation founded by Chris Whittle, that opened its first two campuses in August 2019, in Washington DC and Shenzhen respectively. Whittle plans to expand rapidly to a system of 36 major campuses in many of the world’s leading cities, on every continent except Africa and Antarctica.
Among the building’s distinctive features is an active glass façade, which is animated by screens that move throughout the day in response to the position of the sun. This maximizes the natural light in our classrooms while also regulating glare. The campus is also home to their most expansive Workshop Floor—over 50,000 square feet! Whether a student’s project is 2- or 3-D, physical or digital, the Workshop Floor’s state-of-the-art facilities set the stage to see an idea through from concept to reality.
