THE HOWARD SCHOOL
Classroom building and gym
Scope of Work
New 37,000 square foot K-12 classroom building and 20,000 square foot gymnasium for children with learning differences.
The design reflects the school's teaching process. Spaces are designed to be multi-use and not rectilinear, mirroring the adaptable, dynamic methods of teaching. The building design is reminiscent of the industrial context, with long shed-like forms, mixed materials and exposed steel. The center tower is a beacon for the neighborhood and at the center of the campus is a black box theater with a corrugated metal airplane hangar door which opens to an amphitheater.
