The methodology employed in the design of the Education Center revolves around a series of Guiding Principles. These principles provide a framework for the project's development and establish clear criteria for assessing the design's performance. The aim is to create a state-of-the-art educational experience that embraces the history and legacy of the Alamo while fostering imagination, discussion, and exploration. The design also emphasizes the inclusion of support functions and events, with the building serving as a welcoming and comfortable space for gatherings and community celebrations. Flexibility is a key consideration throughout the building, enabling classrooms to be reconfigured multiple times a day and transforming into event spaces in the evenings. Outdoor learning and activities are encouraged, prioritizing access and views to the Alamo Gardens. Sustainable building practices are integrated into the design, incorporating strategies that minimize negative impacts while enhancing user experience, comfort, and building performance.
