A short while ago, we shared Studio 27 Architecture’s Rincon | Bates House, a contemporary re-conceptualized row house in Washington, D.C.   The firm’s latest project, a new charter school for D.C., is designed to accommodate a new approach to teaching. The school has adopted a new pedagogy, known as the Paragon Teaching Method – an interesting choice as the school is situated in the US’s capital.  This method replaces the traditional way of learning history and encourages an integrated approach that emphasizes how one idea builds on and evolves into another.  “In Paragon, students study history across continents, and gain a profound understanding of the manner in which many ideas develop at the same time in independent cultures unaware of the other’s breakthroughs. Through this, students develop a larger picture of history and the associated interrelationships,” explained a Mosaica Education statement. More about the school, including more images, after the break.
