TYPE: Undergraduate Studio, Individual Work

PROGRAM: School/Open Space

LOCATION: Garfield, Pittsburgh

DATE: Spring, 2018

INSTRUCTOR: Steve Lee

The project explored how could a quick and light building envelop perform effectively while achieving spatial harmony. The proposal oriented the lobby, commons, and activity plaza to south, towards Main street, while the classrooms are to the north west and face the more residential alley. A large communicating staircase encourages circulation and small group encounters through the school, and allows for light and natural ventilation to flow through the Kalwall system and center atrium.
