Design began with an interview with the client, a school teacher, with specific needs. Being a Montessori School, one request was an outdoor space for each classroom. Then tying those needs into the site planning, I found similarities between the school’s needs and the community’s needs. This developed into a concept of weaving, which is applied to all aspects of the project. Connections between community and the school, building to the site, classroom to classroom, and classroom to outdoor space. These connections are defined through layered building assemblies and landscapes.
