Honoring la Joya's Mexican culture, Kell Muñoz Architects creates an oasis of color in a hot bleached landscape. The heart of the school is a large open plaza, similar to those in the small Mexican towns from which many La Joya residents come. It is paved in concrete bricks, with a grid of live oak trees and a small pavilion, or kiosko, for festivals and performances. Plans and photographs accompany the text.
