From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Moorhead Public Schools Career Academy

The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Adaptive Reuse category.

The Moorhead Public Schools Career Academy in Moorhead, Minnesota, has evolved into a facility that houses much more than vocational trades. The building has grown to house business, 3D visual arts and the district’s alternative high school. The two key drivers of the design were learning on display and ultimate flexibility for adapting to future education needs. Both goals were accomplished with 49 glazed overhead doors. These connect lab spaces and other large areas to the extra-wide loop circulation hallway. These doors also give passersby a view of the learning and educational pursuits taking place within the classrooms.
