Dr. Lawrence H. Moore Math, Science, & Technology Academy is a comprehensive elementary school located in Los Angeles. This challenging project required an innovative approach with the LAUSD needing a facility that could provide an intimate-scale learning environment for 800 students along with a 2-acre playground. The final program provides 32 classrooms contained in a three-story building, as well as a library, multipurpose room, food service, lunch shelter and administration office. Other design features include an articulated lantern stair that provides a small gathering area at the corner of
campus to the south, acknowledging the existing park at the opposite corner of the street. This project is CHPS certified.
