The Seven Spaces at LFA

I thought I would take a look at various spaces at Lake Forest Academy (LFA), the school I’m focusing on for my final project.

1) Secret spaces include

individual study rooms and

isolated locatios around campus where kids can go to be alone. *

2) Group spaces:

My favorite physical group space is the formal gardens where the annual start of school all school handshake takes place.

I would suggest that a digital group space is Twitter:
