Francis Parker School is San Diego's oldest and one of its largest independent day school. Back in In the fall of 2002, the school held a design competition for its Middle/Upper School campus aiming at the creation of a new Master Plan as well as the expansion of the existing facilities.

Lake|Flato, won the competition with a design proposal that included "a unique blend of sensitive environmental planning, inspirational public spaces and progressive, open buildings".

One of the recipients of the 2009 Educational Facility Design Awards, the campus recaptures the spirit of its original 1912 structure. The new classrooms, punctuated by operable walls, encourage connectivity to the environment to expose the process of education, not simply the products. High performance envelopes and environmental systems significantly reduce operating costs. The campus emphasizes vibrant, landscaped exterior spaces at its heart.

Kieran Timberlake - Yale University Sculpture Building and Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut Print E-mail
Monday, 31 August 2009 12:37

Kieran_Timberlake_Yale_01The Yale Sculpture Building and Gallery complex is composed of three new buildings; the four-story Sculpture Building, the single-story storefront Gallery, and the four-story parking garage with retail space at the ground floor. While the Gallery and parking structure define the perimeter of the block, the sculpture building is slightly set back and forms the core of the project.

As its name suggest, the 51,000 sq. ft. Sculpture Building is home for the Sculpture programs of Yale’s School of Art. Three floors of individual and group fourteen-foot-high studios flooded with natural light, sit on top of the ground floor and basement that host the classrooms, workshops, administrative spaces and utilities. The architects opted for an exposed steel-frame structure, a modern reinterpretation of the loft. This approach yielded open flexible spaces capable of changing with time and accommodating a wide range of activities.

All three of which are inter-linked underground and to the metro system.

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects - Jubilee School on the surburbs of London Print E-mail

Architects have a general tendency to forget about color and focus on monochromatic compositions. When judiciously utilized, the integration of a polychromatic palette can become a powerful tool that helps define the identity of the project.


Nowhere is it more relevant than in buildings dedicated to children, such as this featured school, since it helps them, finding themselves within spaces that they usually find overwhelming.

BP Architectures - Extension of Two Elementary Schools in Courbevoie (Paris Region), France Print E-mail
Monday, 16 February 2009 01:24

BP_School_01.jpg Courbevoie, a residential district without any real urban markers, has two elementary schools located in the same block and sharing the same playground, but not the same school principal. One school was named “Logie” and the other “Anatole France”. As the need for public space grew, the City of Courbevoie decided that it wanted an extension, which it thought would be common to both schools.

BP Architectures, which was invited to bid on the project, did not see things quite the same way; instead of the ground plan sketched out by the municipal services, BP proposed not one but two extensions; two buildings within the same construction, twin structures arranged perpendicular to each other so that the observer has the strange sensation of seeing the same object from two different angles. Designing two buildings instead of one, allowed each individual school to achieve its own optimum functioning.

Teeple Architects - Langara College Library and Classroom Building in Vancouver, British Columbia Print E-mail
Monday, 19 January 2009 08:39

TEEPLE_Langara_05.jpg




The building was conceived as an environmental form, inflected by the natural forces acting on it. Wind and rain warp its roof. Wind towers are displaced vertically from the roof’s surface. The warped surface lifts the wind into the towers, pulling air through the building. Gardens push into its form, bringing greenery and daylight to its interior. The public spaces of the campus push into the mass of the building, registering in its form.


These environmental forces create the sentient form of the building. One circulates through the same openings that air moves through as it travels vertically up toward the wind towers. Public stairs are placed under the wind towers such that the towers themselves form the principle public interiors of the building.
