Cal Young Middle School, Eugene, OR

DLA collaborated with gLAs Architects to provide site design and ensure that landscape components compliment building architecture. The resultant design brings to form the interplay of academic rigor and creativity through the juxtaposition of geometry and allusions to natural systems.

Particular areas of interest include the main building entrance and interior courtyard. Pavement jointing and color changes allude to the flow of water and natural processes. The courtyard serves as an extension of art classrooms with plinths and display areas provided as outdoor gallery, classroom and critique space. Overt representation in forms is eschewed for loose abstraction. Students define and animate the spaces and the overall design facilitates campus use as a vital learning environment.
