Earlier in this academically-oriented month, the AIA announced the recipients of its Committee on Architecture for Education awards. This year, the jury selected 12 educational facilities that met the criteria of “furthering the client’s mission, goals, and educational program while demonstrating excellence in architectural design.” Of that dozen, we’ve picked our five favorites.
Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School, John F. Cook Campus
Mundo Verde is a sustainability-focused school that consists of two buildings: the renewed historic school and a new pre-K annex. Within the older building, breakout nooks and cubbies are carved from the generous corridors and abandoned ventilation chases. New windows provide natural light to the building core. The façade of the pre-K annex is designed to be deferential to the historic school. A third floor learning terrace, large windows, and building orientation provide for light-filled classrooms which wrap around the natural landscape of the interior play court.
