Please pull forward when space empties in front of you. Keep 87th Ave clear (no queuing) in order to be kind to our neighbors who need to access their homes and mailboxes. Please do not turn left on Cornell Rd. when exiting campus during pick-up hours Don't park in the two parking spots reserved for gala auction winners.

Architecture in the Digital Age
Friday, September 18, 2015
Eighth graders are creating their own architectural monument in their technology class, International Monuments: From Drafting to Construction, this fall. With hands-on explorations to practice abstraction and scale, students will create "sketch models" or 3D sketches (with the help of Legos) to illustrate their three-dimensional design ideas. For historical perspective, students will also study the works of modern architecture innovators like Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and REX, including a case study on Seattle's Central Public Library. Their take-home notes: understanding how to approach problems with a design cycle and applying technology to creative innovative solutions in architecture.
