The founders of the Blue Man Group selected HSA to design a space for their first Blue Man Creativity Center, an innovative Pre-K program combining Reggio-Emilia principles with unique Blue Man Group activities from their theater experience. We worked closely with the Blue Man team to design a space conducive to the founders’ vision of personal expression and exploration. 

The Blue School project was an exciting opportunity to develop a new type of educational facility in which the curriculum’s emphasis on creativity and discovery was reflected in various elements of each learning space. Inventive uses of color, light and sound play important roles in inspiring the children’s imaginations.

In particular, the Art Room reflects the belief of the founders of the Blue School that art is not only an essential part of the curriculum but also a critical part of the school environment and facilities. With a robust art program, students are encouraged to leave their mark in more ways than one.
