Dallas, Texas (2018)
A new Red Barn is sited nearby the Innovation Lab along the new ring-road. This simple structure is an integral part of the culture of learning at the Lamplighter School: it is simultaneously a chicken coop, learning lab, and creative space. Students care for the chickens and harvest the eggs as part of their school work. They learn to develop business plans, track inventory, and market the eggs for sale. The previous barn structure was well-loved but enjoyed little presence on the campus. By reimagining the formal language of the building, the Barn becomes an icon on the campus along, a landmark that is as integral to the masterplan as it is to the pedagogy of the School.
