Like Sinclair, Methodist University believes that learning happens everywhere: in hands-on labs as well as unscheduled spaces. Sasaki's design for Methodist's new building for the school of Health Sciences is home to many interactive learning spaces, including informal therapy practice areas and specialized studio environments dedicated to formal training and movement analysis. In addition to supporting education and research, these learning labs will be a resource for the community. Nearby residents will have access to a high-quality therapy center that offers innovative treatment options. This mutual benefit helps forge a stronger relationship between Methodist and its neighbors.
