MAKE A MITTEN NOT A GLOVE.
Design for the flexibility of the future.
Traditionally schools have been designed like a glove: meaning they do not promote connections, allow for individual learning needs, or for the potential of change in the future.
The “Concept Goals” hope to achieve a mitten design...
4 Floors 25,000 square feet per floor TOTAL : 100,000 square feet.
Lobby Open Atrium with skylights above Student & Teacher Appreciation Wall
CONCEPT GOALS: - Space is conducive in preparing students for college. - Encourages interaction between student, between students and faculty, and between the school and the community. - Cost effective, sustainable, local materials - Students and teachers will feel proud and encouraged to work hard. - Ergonomics & Durability of FF&E - Allow for different types of learning and for future changes in learning.

When we let the design of our communities sink to the point where the only move people want to make is away, we create problems. Combining innovative thought with practical local knowledge dramatically increases the chances for something good to happen in those areas.â€? (Majora Carter, The Power of Pro Bono)
My thesis was driven by the idea that well informed, sensitive design will give hope for the building of new schools in underprivilidged areas resulting in the progress and self-worth in children and communities as a whole.
