Other projects that David Lake, Ted Flato and the Lake | Flato gang are working on are schools. Their main focus when working on schools is to make sure the architecture suits the needs or problems that a particular school faces. If a school is facing any sort of shortage or financial problem, the Lake | Flato crew comes in and assess what things could be fixed structurally to improve said issues. They really focus on “high performance learning environments” when building schools. They want to make sure that when building schools that they aren’t only thinking of students and teachers, but the community around the campus.
