HOUxEDU School Tours
Lakeview Elementary (Fort Bend ISD)
Thursday, April 27, noon-1:30pm

Can design enhance a student’s learning experience? Explore this question with Architecture Center Houston at a series of tours exploring K-12 schools across Houston, organized in conjunction with their exhibition HOUxEDU.

As we move into the third decade of the 21st century public school education is seeing some of its earliest buildings move from just old to historic. For those communities, 100 plus year old buildings represent heart and soul of a community,  and come wrapped in the nostalgia, traditions and stories of families, teachers, parents and students, past and present. How do school districts acknowledge and represent the desires of a community past, while making the very important and required changes and requirements for their present and future. 

Lakeview Elementary in Fort Bend ISD through a thoughtful process and collaboration between district, community and architect was able to bring the 105 year old Sugarland School campus into the 21st century. The process married together the nostalgia of generations of school and neighborhood experience with the requirements around high performance, energy efficient buildings, safety and security, and creating inclusive learning environments, both indoor and outdoor that celebrate learning for pre-k through 5th grade students, in this one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the country. 

This tour will offer insight into how others might manage and realize a successful marriage of the old architecture and modern education requirements. This project is registered for LEED for schools.

Head back to school with a tour of Lakeview Elementary with architects Jody Sergi, AIA and Bill Dwyer, AIA (Kirksey Architecture). 

Tour includes a box lunch.
