The Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School commissioned Arquitectonica to design a building that would house 1,533 students.
Neighboring pristine wetlands, this school’s unique design embraces the surrounding natural environment with its welcoming entry plaza and playful forms. The high school consists of four interconnected volumes, each highlighting various aspects of education and daily high school life.
The first volume, representing the academic dimension, is a 4-story building containing classrooms and labs. Adjacent to the classrooms is the administration and student services area in volume two. The third volume, consisting of the school’s gymnasium and locker rooms, highlights athletics. The fourth volume, containing the combination cafeteria/auditorium, state-of-the-art media center, and meeting spaces, serves to accent student social life.
