Kendall Ellingwood and Kanako Suzuki from our architectural firm, Design Partners, Inc. prepared this presentation about the project. Their photos really show the uniqueness of our building, and I think that everyone was impressed with the vibrant interior colors as well as the functionality and very professional-looking exterior. I know that many of our visitors, when seeing the new buildings, are surprised that they are looking at a school. I learned new information, too, about why concrete blocks are the material of choice for its versatility, sustainability, and efficiency.
Here are some photos from the luncheon and award presentation.
