Greater Grand Crossing Charter School

A 80,000 sq. ft, 600 student charter school for Chicago International Charter Schools in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood of Chicago. The goal was to use precast concrete to create a sophisticated school of the future. The facade allows the concrete frame to permeate to the exterior, translating into a sense of structural openness and transparency that reverses the idea of a school as a warehouse for children but rather a place to set them free.
