Explain the project and its unique use of masonry materials and techniques:
New Bridge Elementary School is an immersive STEM learning environment. The school is organized into grade level houses, containing learning studios that surround a shared exploration center.
Small break out rooms are shared between two studios to support supervised individual and small group learning. As a 1-to-1 device school, the space that was dedicated to computer labs on the prototype plan was modified into a science lab and a maker space engineering lab.
The shared labs support STEM education through engagement in engineering projects, robotics development, scientific method and experiments, and a variety of STEM exploration activities.
Although the exterior and interior structure is CMU, the school features a lot of windows to the exterior and transparency within the school. Each learning studio has a sliding door that opens the studio to the shared exploration center.
The transparency and sliding door, effortlessly integrated into the CMU structure, supports group learning and blurs the boundary of each classroom to foster student collaboration and provide ultimate flexibility to the learning environment.
The school exterior is primarily CMU masonry. The red and brown block school is designed to reflect the traditional art deco character of the community. In fact, local community groups were involved in reviewing the design to verify that the design is appropriate for the neighborhood and to strengthen school district relationships in the area.
The masonry construction has created a lasting school that supports the latest methodologies in STEM learning and compliments the traditional neighborhood setting.
