Auburn Middle School Design Recognized

  by    0   0

LPA has been recognized for its work on the Auburn Middle School, completed last year, by the Central Massachusetts AIA with a merit award, and by Learning by Design with an outstanding project award. Learning by Design is a national publication that comes out twice each year and features projects that exemplify design innovation and excellence in education. Auburn Middle School was featured in their Fall 2016 issue. The article talks about how the school was designed in support of the district’s team-based learning curriculum.

Central Massachusetts AIA honored the project at its annual awards dinner this past November, and said of the school, “The Auburn Middle School is recognized for the design of its strong and inviting circulation corridors. Here color and architectural detail enhance the functional and social aspects of these important spaces. This can be seen where interior windows of the second floor Media Center bow into the grand entry corridor recognizing its importance to the school’s curriculum. Entries to individual classrooms welcome students by giving them special recognition in shape, material, and detailing.”
