Gudy Gaskill Elementary in Littleton, Colo., named for Coloradan mountaineer Gudy Gaskill, was designed with a mountain theme in mind. The school's “learning trail” includes design elements such as a curved ceiling and flooring patterns that create a trail-like feel. This motif is reflected throughout the school, connecting classroom pods and flexible learning areas. Earthy colors and materials such as boulders for flexible seating enhance this theme.
