From the 2021 Educational Interiors Showcase: Mary Lyon Elementary School

Oct. 1, 2021
The Tacoma, Washington, school received the 2021 Crow Island School Citation.

This inspiring replacement preK-5 school evokes the values of the diverse educators, students, and parents who were integral to the year-long planning and design process. The three-story design maximizes outdoor space, and a central atrium library interconnects all floors.
