ALBUQUERQUE, NM, March 13, 2013 /Worldwide Who's Who/
-- Anne P. Taylor, Ph.D., ACSA Distinguished and UNM Regents Professor Emerita, President of the School Zone Institute, has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in architectural programming design and education.
An author, educator and visionary, Dr. Taylor has dedicated her career to improving how students learn in various environments. She believes classrooms should be technology studios to foster creative problem solving. She has taught in the art education and architecture departments of the University of New Mexico, where she is a professor emerita and contributed to the development of an interdisciplinary program in which architectural students taught design classes for young children. As president of the School Zone Institute, a nonprofit organization that conducts research on the behavioral effects of learning environments on children, Dr. Taylor coordinates all projects to facilitate resources for several programs including a visual architectural and design education program for teachers and children.
In her book, "Linking Architecture and Education: Sustainable Design for Learning Environments," Dr. Taylor discusses the role of cutting-edge school design in shaping creativity, cultural appreciation, eco literacy and academic achievement in students. Well-received by educators, architects and administrators who glean valuable information from within its pages, the book is the culmination of her work throughout the years, which also includes numerous curriculum-related documents. Beyond publications and her work with the School Zone Institute, Dr. Taylor provides professional consulting services aimed at planning, designing, and constructing learning facilities as president of Anne Taylor Associates. Instead of predetermined square footage and restrictive budgets the uniqueness of her design process is the inclusion of body, mind, and creative spirit developmental rights of children as design determinants for the physical environment.
Dr. Taylor received a Master of Arts and a Ph.D. in arts education and architecture from Arizona State University, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in American studies from Wells College. She is an honorary member of the American Institute of Architecture and is on the advisory board of the American Clearinghouse on Educational Facilities. She is open to additional consulting roles, speeches, and mentoring opportunities to continue thriving in her profession and enhancing children's lives.
