The public school project is designed as a prototype to be built on multiple campuses throughout Los Angeles. Its aim is an economical, flexible and yet, in its spatial concept, ambitious design that can be adjusted to different pedagogical models and learning styles.

The 2-level building can accommodate up to 500 students, may be reconfigured for other communal functions, and its sustainability concept intends to reach a zero net energy building standard & achieve LEED Platinum rating.
