LA high school drama

21 Jul 2006

COOP HIMMELB(L)AU’s radical design proposal for the Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) new flagship High School on LA's Cultural Corridor is now on site. This 21,204 m², $171.9 million high school will provide courses in music, dance, theatre arts and visual arts. The building will also house a 1000 person capacity theatre that will be open to both students and the public. The design focuses upon a large tower that symbolises the arts within the city. The library is housed in a cone-shaped structure referred to as the ‘Space of Knowledge’. A number of strategically placed circular windows reveal the inner life of the building to passers-by.
