A School Building That Is More Than the Sum of its Prefabricated Parts

Web Abstract: 
Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates design for the addition of an upper school to the Salisbury School in Maryland involved three separate structures: the central dome, the classroom wing, and the gymnasium. From the outside, the school resembles an assemblage of prefabricated parts, namely the dome, the corrugated-steel arches that links the domes to vinyl-sided wings, and the aluminum antennae that act as trellises. Inside, each classroom is unique in terms of its size, shape, and character.
