Institutional: Greenacres Elementary School




This elementary school campus is organized around a central courtyard, with a large existing tree sitting in its center. Employing the spiritual place-making practice of marking a center, we changed the ground plane material in concentric circles emanating from the tree, graduating from soft-scape to hard. A 150 foot long serpentine seat wall snakes through the space, providing ample seating for large school gatherings.
