Friends’ Central Upper and Lower Schools

The academic core of the Friends’ Central School campus was crisscrossed by driveways, parking areas, and pedestrian paths. The intensity of use and poor drainage added to the well-worn, disconnected appearance. Glackin Thomas Panzak prepared a design that transformed the campus core into a central green space, linking the campus entrance with the adjacent academic buildings. The campus oval contains a hierarchy of walkways, materials, and alignments that match student travel-ways.
