restorative, and healing elements of nature...
Inspired by the strong sense of community and the inherent natural beauty of Newtown, our design team is exploring regenerative, restorative, and healing elements of nature as they serve to foster an environment of learning, environmental stewardship, and community involvement.
The following are specific themes being explored between the architecture of the new school and nature. Many of these themes utilize connections to the natural environment as proposed solutions for security, programmatic adjacencies, site access, and parking.
Canopies that connect
Bridges and thresholds
Tree houses and a new horizon
The inner forest
Layers of transparency
Building as a book
