You’ll never think of space the same again! They helped our district think about how space design can close the achievement gap and dismantle antiquated ways of thinking about learning.

They gave us so much more than dazzling renderings. We got explanations for why design decisions were made and how this helps us achieve our bottom line. It’s worth every penny!

How it started

Danish Kurani is an architect and designer who’s dreamt of designing a better world since he was a kid. At 13, he was sketching plans for recreation centers for children in Pakistan. Today, he’s the Founder of Kurani, a global architecture firm that designs life-changing spaces for education.

For every space he designs, from science labs in at-risk communities to rehabilitation centers for incarcerated men, Danish infuses his unique design philosophy, which he’s been cultivating over the past 15 years. 

Danish has taught at Harvard and Stanford, worked with Google and Khan Academy, and advised Fortune 100 companies and governments that spend hundreds of millions on design and construction each year.

In 2021, Fast Company voted Kurani one of the most innovative architects in the world. His work is just beginning.
