Green Forest Middle School
green forest, arkansas
The Green Forest Middle School is a modern, 2-story educational building located in the small agricultural community of Green Forest, Arkansas. The 29,014 SF building acts as both a hub and backdrop for students and the inhabitants of the greater community by defining a landscaped plaza in the heart of the campus. Modern façade articulation of metal panel and concrete block re-imagines the use of durable, low-maintenance, and cost effective materials that are common to school construction. Powerful architectural elements define entry, inspire movement through the building and contain key educational components in a fun, practical, and sustainable way. The design is resolved through the use of economical and intelligent materials combined to enrich the existing campus through the interaction of people, space, form, and color.
