    TWO COMPACT URBAN SCHOOLS

    A school on top of a parking garage might not initially sound appealing. A parking garage would be a bleak, unlovely place, an aesthetic bludgeon to hungry young minds. But that's where design comes in.

    The Gonzalo and Felicitias Mendez Fundamental Intermediate School in Santa Ana, California, is tucked behind a shopping mall, on top of a parking garage. — Published 2001.0725

    DESIGNING SCHOOLS TOGETHER

    When the architecture firm of Fanning/Howey Associates, Inc. begins planning for a new school or renovation, they call on the help of hundreds. Although huge teams are not always the most efficient, the architects believe that ultimately they will yield the best result.

    This collective design work is conducted in "charrettes," or intensive, interactive, public design sessions. Teams of architects, engineers, and educational facilities planners set up design stations in a central location such as a school district's headquarters. — Published 2001.0718

    HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS

    In May 2001, the National Trust for Historic Preservation celebrated Preservation Week with a theme of "restore, renew, rediscover your historic neighborhood schools."

    NEW SCHOOL EMBODIES ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL CONCERNS

    Editor's Note: In this story, Wissam Jabr describes the approach taken by his firm to this substantial school project.

    In creating an educational environment for "mentally challenged" children and young adults, as architects we faced a few challenges of our own. Beirut's new Abdel Hadi Debs School for Mental Development was to function as both home and school for 575 students plus staff, with a restricted budget but high ambitions for energy conservation. — Published 2001.0221
