How do people build their homes in different places across the world? What elements would a sacred space require? These are questions constructed by students and teachers in the Wise Project Studio, a flagship center of innovation for our Los Angeles campus. An integrated convergence of art, technology, and science, Project Studio is a virtual playground where students engage in divergent thinking exercises using a variety of educational modalities.
In this hands-on workspace, students participate in a process of inspiration, ideation and implementation, modeling the evolutionary creative processes of paradigm-shifting companies. We emphasize collaboration and “sparks of thought,” enabling students to build upon each other’s ideas using a diverse range of materials in an inspired, student-centric environment. Throughout the process, students discover their personal strengths and implement them.
