Through a wide variety of cultural and learning projects, ELM has been able to create and maintain the unique relationship that exists between these spaces and the contexts in which they function. Since the ELM design team adopts a holistic approach that considers all factors that affect the success of these projects. This focused involvement from ELM principals and staff has delivered a number of successful projects that include zoos, aquariums, schools and educational facilities, tribal planning, and church campuses.
