Please join OPN Architects for an exclusive look on what goes on behind the “facade” during the architectural design process – think of it like an architect’s show and tell day! This full day gathering is tailored for you, superintendents and school business officials, delving into the forefront of architectural design impacting your K-12 environments. Engage in dynamic discussions, gain insights into design methodologies, and explore concepts shaping the future of learning environments. From sustainable practices to adaptable spaces, this day offers a platform for inspiration and networking.
