ARCH 202B: Architectural Design II Gallery: The Materiality of Schools, Sites, and Sheds

Staggered Sandbox

Staggered floor plates with the addition of shifting roof structure create compression and expansion, separating each program and encouraging students and teacher to move to more public spaces with higher head space. The open-to-air building encourages and welcomes interaction with nature and the outside. The open plan with no thresholds or hallways is separated with a mere field of walls, inspiring playful spaces and increasing human interaction.
