Redesigning the Library using Design Thinking

The English Department embarked on a year-long design thinking process to redesign the library in Commonwealth Secondary School. They identified students and teachers as their users and tried to gain insight into their needs for the library space. Based on their findings, they narrowed down the key features of the library space into 3 core functions. As part of the culminating event, the team presented their key findings and the third iteration of their prototype design to the school leaders today for their feedback and further discussion.
