Bellevue High School Honored
The American Institute of Architects Washington Council presented a Civic Design Citation to Bellevue High School at their annual awards program on May 8. This program honors contributions to great public design.
The design of the new Bellevue High School
, in Bellevue, Washington, celebrates sustainability through harmony with nature. The new entry icon sets this tone, as a cascading waterfall of roof water spills into a rain garden between two planes of red brick masonry. The red brick, as well as the recycled sculpture in the glass lobby, are in deference to the school it has replaced. The design is intended to adapt to a variety of learning models in the future. The science classrooms can be zoned either vertically or horizontally to create separate clusters of science pods. As such, the school can be adapted to a school-within-a school model, an academy model, or other innovative learning delivery approaches.
