MetadataShow full item record
Building upon the form of a middle school, this thesis is an examination of several architectural questions. This new middle school is imagined to exist at the old Blacksburg Middle school site on Main street between Clay and Eheart streets. Fundamental to the thesis is the concept of centrality. Correspondingly, a large central gathering space forms the heart of the school. Flow emanates from this heart into arterial hallways that open up to the classrooms and finally to capillary hallway window nooks and occupiable classroom windows. These nested spacial and circulatory scales form another focus of the thesis. Additionally, a series of classrooms types are explored giving consideration to furnishing and lighting.
