The City School

The City School brings the community into the school through architectural events that break down the line between the school and the surrounding neighborhood. The public programs are extracted from the building, reorientated to the neighborhood, and then reinserted back into the school. This reorientation skews the public program from the building and city grid and its heavily axial views, creating a new perspective on the city and a visual and physical connection between the school and neighborhood.
