  New School Vision Spiral  
 


Cleveland Design Competition: A New School Vision - August 2011

CONCEPT FOR THE CAMPUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (CIS)
K-12 on 62 Steps ©

A world of learning emerges from the ground clad in glass and solar panels, an open plan on a continuous spiral of wedge shaped steps. Each stepped platform elevates one vertical foot around a central atrium, a continuity of shared resources for grades K to 12. The ADA compliant spiral commences at street level, from which the Elementary School winds eighteen feet down to the Physical Education platform, and up for the Middle and High Schools. The spiral platforms range from 1,100sf to 1,900sf net, not including the circulation ramp. Together they comprise 62 platforms encompassing 135,000sf. The classroom plan contains two and three-room clusters, some combining lecture space with lab and workrooms to foster class sharing of adjacent space.
