Inspiring spaces.
Holistic solutions.



The Education Design Unit (EDU) is a boutique, education-focused design partnership between Make Architects, Elliott Wood, Max Fordham, Gustafson Porter + Bowman and ZZA Responsive User Environments.

We’re uniquely placed to improve the use, quality and variety of university spaces, making them work harder regardless of capital expenditure.





We’re a new kind of design team, established to improve the delivery of high-quality learning environments. We combine the benefits of a large, in-house multi-disciplinary team with the agility and progressiveness of smaller individual companies.
We have a long history of successful collaboration, and together we aim to create the best learning spaces in the world – top-quality facilities that attract students, serve educators and respond to the changing needs of education, today and in the years ahead.
