Studio E Architects - High Tech High Chula Vista in Chula Vista, California Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 June 2011 10:20

High-Tech-High-Chula-Vista_Jim-Brady-9Photo credit : Jim Brady Architectural Photography Recently selected as one of the 2011 COTE Top Ten Green Projects by the American Institute of Architects, the High Tech High Chula Vista is a public charter school serving 550 students in grades 9 to 12 with an approach rooted in project-based learning. Owned and occupied by HTH Learning, a nonprofit corporation, the school fosters student engagement by knowing students well, tapping into student experience and interests, and building a strong sense of community. Through internships and projects based in the community, students collaborate with adults on work with meaning that extends well beyond the school walls.

Located in Chula Vista, California, High Tech High is at the center of one of the most economically and culturally diverse zones in the United States, just seven miles south of downtown San Diego and seven miles north of the US/Mexico border's busiest port of entry. The school takes advantage of this unique context to randomly select students in a way that ensures diversity. Coupled with a lack of ability groupings within the school, it is both diverse and integrated.

BNIM - Greensburg Schools/Kiowa County Schools Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 May 2011 07:52

Kiowa-County-Schools_Assassi_03Photograph ©Farshid Assassi We continue the coverage of the AIA/COTE Top Ten Green Projects with this community oriented green school, set with a rural environment. The community of Greensburg, Kansas was nearly destroyed by an F5 tornado on the evening of May 4, 2007. All school facilities were lost in the devastation. The school district made a strategic decision to combine all its facilities into a single location to consolidate functions for greater efficiency.

This decision was driven by the desire to create the best learning environments, to keep the identity of the three age-appropriate facilities (elementary, middle, and high) within a single building, and to do so with a focus on creating the best long-term facility based on life-cycle cost.

During the design process, the decision was made to pursue LEED Platinum with a constant focus on creating the best daylight-filled educational environment to enhance student performance.

The site selection and the ultimate site development were also critical during the pre-design effort, as they placed the facility in the heart of town along Main Street, consistent with the City's comprehensive master plan. The design team worked closely with the district to select the site and to integrate the facility into the community fabric to establish a walkable community.

Positive Energy Preschool in the Oise Department, France Print E-mail
Thursday, 03 March 2011 09:42

Located in Breteuil, a small town in the Northern part of France, the project is a small preschool, snuggled between preserved buildings classified as ‘Historic Monuments’. The street, called ‘rue des Écoles’, hosts different schools, and the project adopts a contemporary and neutral exterior to ease its integration between the eclectic ensemble of school buildings.

Outside, the project is covered by sheets of copper. The ductile material wraps itself around the walls up to the ceiling. It covers the school in a shimmering skin that will eventually change color as it ages over the course of time.

ZGF Architects - The John E. Jaqua Academic Center for Student Athletes at the University of Oregon Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:03
The John E. Jaqua Center for Student Athletes at the University of Oregon explores the limits of transparency and connectivity to provide the UO’s student-athletes a place to gather as a community focused on study and learning. The challenge of creating a tranquil environment where students feel connected to natural landscape elements and daylight was heightened by the chosen  location: a busy intersection between campus and the city of Eugene, on the site of a former parking lot at one of the major campus entrances.

Clive Wilkinson Architects - FIDM San Diego Campus in San Diego, California
 Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 January 2011 00:00

This project is a wonderful example of design as a statement. The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) is a private college with a thirty-five-year history of offering degrees directed at placing students in fashion, design and business. Having completed three previous major projects, the college asked the architect to create a new San Diego campus that represents the school’s progressive attitude towards education. The result is a space that is both non-traditional and tangibly centered around the value of design, appropriate enough for a school with just such a focus.

The project occupies the entire third floor of a high-rise office building. Comprising approximately 30,000 square feet, the space needed to accommodate all of the elements of the school’s main campus within the smaller footprint of a regional campus. To achieve this, the school is designed as a sequence of zones: a public entry zone; an educational zone housing classrooms, the library, and technology resources; and an administration zone for the school’s staff.
