Outdoor Community Space to foster Learning

Rodriguez Elementary School is located in a tight sloping site with poor soils that are characteristic to the area east of IH 35. The H shaped building steps down at the crossing center segment creating a split level section to take advantage of the site contours.

The Details

Among the features are specially designed learning pods aimed to serve as co-teaching spaces with small group breakout areas that connect to the classrooms. High-performing acoustical environments to foster the sound recognition necessary for language development have been integrated into the design and surfaces have been selected to prevent noise bleed off from space to space.

Classroom learning pods and common spaces open to outdoor learning spaces in the form of split-level learning courtyards that incorporate science and robotics curriculum, serve as a space to hold art classes and allow for deeper connections with an outdoor presentation area. Connecting the courtyards in the heart of the school will be a dual-level media center.
