The City of Lakes Waldorf School engaged Cuningham Group in a master planning process to create a rich, rewarding, and sustainable landscape as a first step towards stewarding the next 25 years of Waldorf education in Minneapolis.

Our team completed a comprehensive analysis of the site and a detailed evaluation of Waldorf’s methodology and pedagogy. Designers then synthesized this information into a final design that incorporates rain gardens, hills for climbing and sledding, treehouses, bridges, and an amphitheater. At the same time, the student drop-off/pick-up function was simplified to create a safer, more coherent method for student mobility.
