Germanshire Elementary

The 750-student school shares a 25-acre site with a new city park. Designed as a "village" of "buildings" (classroom blocks) connected by a "Main Street" (the corridor system), its small, almost residential scale uses sloped roofs and a brick exterior to complement the architecture of the surrounding neighborhood.

"The design for this school is particularly harmonious with the surrounding neighborhood and provides an excellent school for the education of the neighborhood's children. Numerous accolades have been received for the accommodation of public art within the facility. "

– Paul D. Baker, Program Manager
