BARNETT SCHOALS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 1

Barnett Shoals is a replacement new elementary school at an existing facility. The goal was to incorporate a new form of teaching with flexible multi-use learning environments within grade-level neighborhoods segmented, yet linked together, by circulation paths. Media and music related curriculums provide a core to the school with terraced outdoor levels usable for outside learning and recreational events. Buses and cars are separated completely for drop-off and pick-up. A gentle sloping of the grounds adds a playful interest and separation for various green learning techniques. Strong geometric shapes are dominate throughout as place makers along with cognitive colors that help to establish learning cues in various areas of the school.
