Project DescriptionFROM AIA GEORGIA:
The project aimed to create a school in a public urban park. The program is a charter high school for the arts, accommodating 400 students. It includes 20 classrooms, 3 arts studios, administration office, 1 art gallery, 1 gymnasium, cafeteria and parking lot for faculty. The main thesis of the project was to question and challenge the notions of an enclosed inaccessible school to make it a more engaged environment so it can actively be involved with the community, linking them through media (art) and nature (the public urban space).
