PROGRAM ABSTRACT (150 word max):
Enter the Open Architecture Challenge with Pescadero Elementary and Middle School to design a model classroom. Conduct classroom visits to interact with the school children to gain student involvement in the design.
Using prefab containers as a base for design possibilities, explore combinations of built space/ unbuilt space, and configurations of modular classrooms. Separate the skin from structure, and rethink the possibilities of doors, windows and ramps: maybe ramps can become a seating.
Design for Elementary School students.

PITCH : Pescadero Elementary School is a school that had been having on going redevelopment and construction difficulties where the students are left with inadequate classrooms. Currently there are vacant portable classrooms that are not being used because of code compliance. We can design a model classroom with them with the hopes that we can influence future classroom design, and the award can be used towards the remodeling of the existing classrooms.
OBJECTIVES/STRATEGIC CONTEXT : The project goal is to complete a submission for the Challenge, and to gain enough understanding and offer support to the school board and students. This will help to connect the Bay Area community designers with people in need of design service.
PROJECT STATUS: Need registeration. Schematic Design.
