Feltonville School of Arts & Sciences

The school’s semi-circular shape transformed an urban street into a courtyard, while careful placement of glass-lined corridors and classrooms allowed students to enjoy the views of greenery wherever they traveled in the building. Each classroom creates a unique learning environment of a small-learning community, encouraging teamwork and inspiring collaborative projects. The American Institute of Architects has bestowed the Feltonville Academy of Arts & Sciences an award for Architectural Excellence.
