We wanted to provide everyone with a little update about our Montessori Kickstarter project. In case you missed it, and thanks to your support, we successfully funded the Montessori Blueprints! Yes, that's us, pictured below, smiling!
This project was initiated by Hugh Weber, a parent at Baan Dek, and Bobby George. Here's how the idea arose. One morning, at drop-off, we started a conversation. We were discussing ways in which to bring a greater sense of awareness and appreciation to Montessori. You see, we wanted to reach a wider audience, and share with them, what makes Montessori so important. In particular, we wanted to offer alumni, parents, and students, ways in which to share their enthusiasm for Montessori.
How best to accomplish this task? We thought it would be terrific to focus on the wonderful intersection of architecture and education. Why? Because there's so much precision in Montessori, and so many layers to the activities, that we thought Montessori Blueprints would be a perfect way to convey that unique sense of education that Montessori offers. While our ultimate goal is to see these prints on the walls of Amazon and Google, more than anything, we would love to see them in your schools, homes and offices.
