Epson, the number-one projector manufacturer in the world1, recognizes two of its customers – Rush University in Chicago and Muskego-Norway School District in Wisconsin – who were named winners in the School Planning & Management/College Planning & Management 2019 Education Design Showcase. They were recognized for their innovative construction projects, both of which feature Epson projection display technology.

The district partnered with Bray Architects to design the new 136,836 square-foot middle school which includes a two-story academic wing organizing grades five through eight into “neighborhoods” to facilitate collaboration, group work and project-based learning. Each classroom has an Epson BrightLink interactive display which transforms any flat surface such as existing whiteboards, plain walls, and tables into an up to 100-inch interactive workspace. The school also features technical education classrooms – large spaces that act as hubs of learning, and a 900-foot “Phab Lab” makerspace.

The Education Design Showcase was established in 1999 to recognize innovative yet practical solutions in higher education and K-12 planning, design and construction.
“Both Rush University and the Muskego-Norway School District have worked hard to provide innovative, active learning environments for students,” said Jason Meyer, group product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “It is impressive to see them being recognized in the Education Design Showcase.”
