P.S. 64 and Annex

How do we keep the memory of P.S. 64 while moving forward? This proposal for the new P.S. 64 is based on the premise that the essence of education is outside of the typical classroom, where the students are engaged with their community. In the new P.S. 64, the traditional classrooms are kept in the partially modified original building while the new annex functions as the heart of the school. The annex provides students with a learning environment through engagement and interaction with their city and community; it connects the school to the community through the visual arts and music. In the art and music studios, gallery, and auditorium, students are both the performers and artists as well as the audience and viewers. The annex is a symbol of moving forward from old to new, shown by the evolution of the vault to an archway and the dichotomy between rigid and light.
