From the 2021 Architectural Portfolio: Norman-Sims Elementary School

May 9, 2022
Norman-Sims Elementary School was recognized in the pre-K/early childhood category of American School & University's 2021 Architectural Portfolio.

Norman-Sims Elementary in Austin, Texas, represents the union of two schools in the historically African American neighborhood of East Austin.

The creation of the Discovery Pavilion, the new “billboard” for the modernized school, has sparked the engine of invention and innovation on campus. A two-story building addition is anchored at the north and south by learning neighborhoods in renovated spaces; the third learning neighborhood is on the second floor of the Discovery Pavilion.
