PROJECT INTENTIONS: primary concept was to split the major meadow into its two minor meadows to the south. the translucent canopy links the buildings to trees as it recedes to the tree tops. due to the warm humid climate when class is primarily in session (spring, summer, fall), most of the space is outdoor to obtain optimum ventilation.
