La fachada de vidrio de esta escuela (http://www.reeceschool.org) para niños con necesidades especiales recoge los rayos de sol e inunda las aulas con grandes manchas de colores. Encajado en un pequeño solar, el edificio aloja también oficinas, un gimnasio, una sala de plástica y una terraza al aire libre destinada al recreo. La fachada se relaciona con el ritmo y las proporciones de los edificios de viviendas colindantes, y su viva presencia reactiva la recuperación de su entorno urbano. El proyecto ha recibido varios premios: American Architecture Award (Chicago Atheneum), Design Award (New York State AIA) y K-12 Educational Facilities Design Award (Boston Society of Architects/AIA).
The glass screen façade of this school for young children with special needs captures the sun to bring big patches of color into their classrooms. Fit onto a small site, the building also includes offices, a gym, an art room and an outdoor recreational terrace. Tying in with the rhythm and proportions of the adjoining tenements, the school’s lively presence accelerates the revival of its urban neighborhood. The project received an American Architecture Award from the Chicago Atheneum and a Design Award from the New York State AIA in 2008, as well as a K-12 Educational Facilities Design Award from the Boston Society of Architects/AIA in 2007.
