A double height, 350’-long gallery space acts as the building’s main circulation spine, with the commons, specialty labs, project rooms, and teaching neighborhoods all clearly visible to teachers and students as they navigate the building. Angled, brightly colored walls add interest and irregularity to the gallery and create spaces for informal convocations of soft seating and coffee tables. Large expanses of glass permit vistas into the school’s biotech, robotics, and wireless technology labs, while built-in exhibition cabinets and bench seating add life and texture. Clerestory windows flood the gallery with diffuse light and mezzanine-level balconies overlook the dynamic space.
