Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability

Orienting a new generation of eco-conscious citizens

  • Wayfinding

Collaborators: Studio Gang, SCAPE, and Atelier Ten | Construction begins 2026


Meeting the urgency of today’s critical moment, the Doerr School of Sustainability is Stanford University’s first new school in 75 years, educating a new generation of eco-conscious citizens tackling climate change head-on and at scale. Once–Future will contribute signage and wayfinding to the school’s new indoor/outdoor commons designed by Studio Gang, SCAPE, and Atelier Ten.

“The Sustainability Commons will unite Stanford faculty and students from across a wide range of academic disciplines and will serve as a hub for a local and global network academic, business, technology, and policy partners working to drive solutions that advance the long-term prosperity of the planet. It will also seek to welcome those most affected by climate change–from its neighbors in Silicon Valley to Indigenous communities from around the world and to transform its site into a thriving habitat supporting the region’s larger network of living things.

The Sustainability Commons will comprise new anchor buildings and a series of outdoor spaces on the west side of Stanford’s campus that will support both new programs for the school and existing programs that are currently housed in other locations.”
