Charter School Concept
EMERGENCE is an elementary school concept that begins with a traditional courtyard diagram. The courtyard is then manipulated; opened up and broken apart, to connect to the community and surrounding site. The building form is further pushed and pulled to accommodate programmatic/volumetric requirements. The building also lifts up off of the ground in one corner to create a passage from the courtyard to future site development and outdoor athletic facilities.
Emergence was one of four finalists in a widely held design competition for UNO and was designed to achieve LEED silver. The 55,000 SF proposal was for a Fast track, Design/Build deliver y method with a GMP of 14.7 million dollars, to be constructed within a 10 month timeline.
