Project Description

FROM THE AIBC:

Pitt River Middle School begins each day as a quiet, white box, clad in corrugated siding. As the day begins and the 5,580 SM school for 450 students in grades 6-8 comes to life, bi-folding shutters that protect the building at night from vandalism are opened to reveal the warmth of the timber columns highlighted with brightly coloured panels. In their open position the perforated shutters provide solar shading, and they can be lowered to provide glare control as necessary. After dark, the rigid shutters transform into a diaphanous curtain.
