Pine Crest New Lower School

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Following its project-based learning methodology within the development of a LEED certified campus, the Pine Crest Upper School program objectives are quite innovative.  Zyscovich worked with school administrators to re-create the campus to provide learning opportunities in the form of inventive spaces such as classroom-like areas in breezeway-porches, outdoor courtyards, and stairway teaching galleries. There are exterior classrooms dedicated for science, art, and media courts only steps from the students’ desks. 

The mission of the school is to inspire in its students academic, moral, social, aesthetic, and athletic principles, to be kindled by their state-of-the-art facilities. The buildings are designed to make many of their environmental benefits obvious to both students and teachers, as the buildings themselves will teach with items such as interactive screens that give constant updates of the building’s energy consumption.  The Upper School is now registered for LEED Gold certification.
