A Design that Shares Itself. Learning by Design: Part II
Theimer, James E.

As a society, we need to have the right environmental decisions become ingrained in the mindset of our children in order to be successful at maintaining the long-term health of our planet. We can achieve that best at home and through our schools. For schools to become good teachers of environmental health, those who determine how schools get built need to rethink their priorities. At the local, state and federal level "green" needs to become so important today that tomorrow we won't need to refer to it anymore. For us to "get it," we need to see examples of what is possible. That's where the Redding School of the Arts comes in to play. Designed as a virtual clearinghouse of eco-friendly ideas, it literally has something for everyone. It's wonderful to build an environmentally advanced building, but its eco-friendly features need to be transparent to all those who travel through its hallways.
