Project: Outdoor Classroom
Client: Red Elementary School PTO

A math/science magnet school commissioned the University of Houston’s Summer Graduate Design Build Studio to design and construct an outdoor classroom for science and physical education classes. The result was an inspiring sustainable structure that also taught the students science; with a perforated steel roof deck of the constellations, a rainwater runoff “funnel” demonstrating Bernoulli’s Principle and a koi pond that provided the daily biology lesson.
