T'siya Elementary and Middle School Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico.

Web Abstract: 
Describes the title school building by Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, including the educational context and design goals. Includes information on the architects, manufacturers/suppliers, and construction team; a general building description; and a commentary on the design. Also includes the floor plan and photographs. The heart of the design is a circular plaza that can be used for traditional ceremonial dances, gatherings, weddings, and outdoor classes. Countless visual allusions to the decor of Pueblo buildings and Zia pottery motifs indicate that this is reverential and meaningful place, designed to embrace the Zia people.
