The volume A, with 5 levels, ensures the west urban front of the Mello e Sousa street. It´s turned to the sea and that explains the multiplous terraces it has as well as its grey color that is inspired on the foggy days sky common of this coast areas. This color is also the color of the predominant stone – “azulino de cascais”.

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This new public school for 500 students is located in a tough South Los Angeles neighborhood almost directly under the flight path into LAX and adjacent to the very busy 105 Century freeway.  The design was influenced by the New Orleans architects Curtis and Davis who designed and built many schools in the early 1950s in Louisiana.  Their designs adapted to the harsh southern climate without using air conditioning, creating sustainable light filled and poetic spaces for kids to learn.
