Architecture Overview:

To design the ideal Educare School for the Winnebago Tribe community, our Early Education team immersed themselves with the Ho-Chunk people. Discovery through culture, history books, museums, and most importantly, communication with the community and its elders helped develop a design concept that is sensitive and reflective of the tribe and its history. Through this exploration, two influential design themes emerged: path and earth. Path signifies the Winnebago tribe’s split from the other Siouan tribes and the beginning of a new journey as a single tribe. Earth represents respect for and dependence upon the earth, as it became vital to the existence of the Ho-Chunk people.
