AIA-CAE 2010 Design Awards Announcement: School Without Walls

The AIA Committee on Architecture for Education 2010 Design Awards Jury announced that EE&K has been chosen for a Citation Award for School Without Walls Senior High School. This project was selected out of 69 entries that were submitted this year.

Fostered by its downtown location within a major urban university academic district, the school offers an innovative early college curriculum in partnership with neighboring George Washington University, this remodeled 1882 school building was designed both to respect the historic architecture and mirror the University’s technology standards. The school modernizes and expands a prominent civic building that is both a local landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. The design is under review for LEED for Schools – Gold. Achieving these targets involved improving the thermal and acoustical performance of a landmarked 19th Century building without compromising its unique character.
