MINNEAPOLIS MONTESSORI SCHOOL:
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

 

Through extensive research involving precedent studies of local, national, and world-renowned primary education facilities, the challenge was to create a Montessori school designed to meet the unique needs of children while responding to the intense standards set forth by the Montessori program.  Local schools were visited and research was conducted on the patterns and habits of children in a classroom environment.  Successful and unsuccessful elements of other schools were also studied.

From this research, a series of models was created at a variety of scales, exploring responses to the issues studied.  These models led to the design of a whole school designed to fit a local site on the edge of the Mississippi river.
