Work continues on performing arts high school in L.A.

Nov. 12, 2007
$232 million project is scheduled to open in 2009
Officials with the Los Angeles school district say the $232 million High School for the Visual and Performing Arts is 70% complete. Starting in fall 2009, the campus will serve about 1,600 students. More than 60 classrooms and loft-style workspaces with 14-foot ceilings will be split between two main school buildings. Stairways look out to the street through huge circular windows. A third building will house administrative offices, and the courtyard will hold a public plaza that segues into a partially outdoor cafeteria with views of the Downtown skyline. The architects that have worked on the project include Coop Himmelblau, HMC Architects and AC Martin Partners.To read the LA Downtown News article, click here.
