Q&A with architect Glenn Angelle

Part I

Tell us a little about yourself.

From an early age I wanted to be an architect. It started when my dad hired an architect to add to our house in the small town of Breaux Bridge. I was one of nine kids and I was sleeping every night on the sofa in the den. Needless to say, I had a keen interest in his work. I remember helping the architect measure the existing house and after that I was hooked. Later on, when my local high school allowed me to take college courses my senior year, I jumped at the chance and enrolled at UL Lafayette majoring in architecture.

I quickly realized how architecture is truly an urban profession. That is where the action is! Until I got to college I had not even met an architect, except of course the one my dad had hired. I mention this because after practicing for almost 40 years, looking back, I believe my decision to practice in the small town where I grew up was influenced by what I learned: there is a need to emphasize “Design Thinking” in our public discourse - not only in urban settings, but in small towns and parishes everywhere. I’m a believer that design matters and that we all have a stake in lifting our communities and the quality of life for all. That’s been my mission throughout my design career.

What is the building project's timeline?
We are working to get the project construction underway this fall with an aim to occupy by December of 2019.

How does the campus embrace 21st century learning?
The current educational emphasis is on collaborative learning and STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. We have incorporated open collaborative spaces within the Commons Building, provided for outdoor spaces for science education and even have designed two screened-in classrooms that teachers can share in their everyday lesson plans. A lake is designed into the master plan to allow for hands-on educational activities. While most school design discussion in the past has centered around "Teaching Spaces"- I like to refer to schools as “Learning Spaces” - to think of each space from the perspective of the student.

Bob Bush, EDS Grandparent and Lake Expert, on the new teaching lake

Our family is excited to participate with EDS and the expansion through grade 12. One aspect of the new campus will be a lake. We asked if we could be a part of that project. We have personal experience with Southeast Pond Management in Madison, Ms. They have agreed to discount the stocking of the lake. This will insure a proper balance of game fish and forage fish. EDS will have an excellent teaching facility. Students will service feeders, adding fish food on a weekly basis. They will also learn when to apply fertilizer to promote vegetation growth. Students will fish the lake, learning angling techniques and they will also have the opportunity to clean and process fish. And of course cooking their catch! This will provide a chance for students to be exposed to a sport and recreational activity that will serve them the rest of their lives. We would like to have a corporate sponsor to work with us long term. We plan on having family gatherings, picnics and fishing tournaments featuring the lake and all it has to offer. If you have an interest in matching our family contribution or contributing to the south campus project, please contact Allison Schnake, Director of Advancement at EDS, at
