Fielding International is a global leader for the planning and design of educational facilities. For the past 20 years, we have provided consulting services to many international and private schools; public school districts; local, regional and national governments and other educational clients in over 50 countries on six continents.

We partner with school organizations to plan and design learning spaces and experiences that promote student agency, enrich social and emotional well-being, and cultivate authentic learning. We have a commitment to re-imagining the future of education alongside the communities we serve.

We exist to make the world better by improving environments for learning.”

Located in four US studios, plus a presence in Singapore, we are a highly integrated team of Architects, Educators, Designers and Planners. We are unified in our passion and mission to move school design out of the mid-1950’s and into the rapidly changing world of the 21st century. Our landmark book, “The Language of School Design,” attempts to identify a strategy for repairing the apparent disconnect that has grown between traditional schooling and the emerging best practices and learning research that supports our common goals in creating learning environments for tomorrow's children.

Fielding melds facility design with education design, creating an optimum learning experience for the students of every school community we partner with. This “sweet spot” in the middle is possible because the educators on our teams are just as important as the architects and designers. Their participation at every stage of the process is the differential we provide.

Fielding team members bring value with their specializations, global perspectives, and understanding of complex problems.


Fielding International was established in 2003 as an architecture firm focused on designing learner-centered schools around the world. For sixteen years the firm grew, partnering with school communities to develop learning spaces and practices that help learners thrive. In 2019, the company changed its name from Fielding Nair International to Fielding International to reflect both the evolution of the company’s leadership as well as its vision for the future.
