Case Study: Manassas Park Elementary + Pre-K. Manassas Park, Virginia

Web Abstract: 
VMDO Architects uses sustainable buildings systems and natural cycles to demonstrate eco-conscious living to the next generation. With outdoor learning spaces, views of the forests, and building systems as “learning tools,” the school teaches environmental stewardship at every opportunity. Each wing of the building has a seasonal theme, and the classrooms are designated with a native species or plant rather than a number. A touch-screen dashboard in the lobby is at child-height so passing students can pause for a moment to click around.
