The Rainbow SchoolEdit profile
Vivid, saturated colors and bold forms reflect the high energy and playfulness of this new K-5 elementary for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The two-story, L-shaped, main building houses classrooms, library, and administrative functions. It is accommodated on the constrained site by situating it and the playground over subterranean parking. Placing the classrooms at the perimeter along double-loaded corridors maximize the introduction of natural light and ventilation. The multipurpose room and playground provide joint-use opportunities for after-schcol and early childcare programs and other community activities and events.
