INTERNATIONAL STUDIES LEARNING CENTER


CLIENT:          
LOS ANGELES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

TYPOLOGY:  
MIDDLE SCHOOL



The design/build team of Gonzalez Goodale Architects and Kemp Brothers won this invited design competition for a 500-student international studies middle school. 

Sited across from its sister International High School, in the formerly industrial zone of Southgate along the Los Angeles River, the design proposed supplanting an existing cul-de-sac with a tree-lined shared middle school/high school drop-off which, importantly, created a central parkway between the schools, framed views to the historic trestle bridge crossing the L.A. River, and created a zone of unified green campus space between both schools.
