KOREATOWN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Duration - Ten Weeks

Professor - Barry Milofsky

Third Year

Over the course of one quarter this studio focused on every aspect of architecture; including systems integration, codes, structure, construction documents, and multiple programatic elements. Revolving around an elementary school located in Downtown Los Angeles, the school served as both a private place for education, and a public community center. The program included a public library, twelve elementary school classrooms, two kindergarten classrooms, administration offices and a multi-purpose room. Additionally, the program required half of the site to be used for play areas, and underground parking for the faculty. Systems integration included sizing and placement of  the HVAC system, lighting and reflected ceiling plans, window type calculations, sprinkler systems, and ADA accessibility throughout the entire school. The structure of the building was also required and every structural element was sized and planned accordingly.
