Charrette: Withergreen School

  • AIA Center for Architecture 403 Northwest 11th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Join us to help design a masterplan for the expansion of the Withergreen Foundation Nursery and Elementary School in Gardnerville, Liberia. All interested architects and designers are invited to participate in this charrette. We plan to form a project team from those who attend, but a commitment to the longer-term effort is not necessary for participation in the charrette.

The non-profit Withergreen School is an existing institution currently serving 250 students in Gardnerville, a suburb of Monrovia, Liberia's capital and largest city. The expanded school will accommodate as many as 600 students on a campus that is situated a compact site in an existing neighborhood. The expansion will include additional classrooms, a community hall, library, science and IT lab, landscaped outdoor recreation space, and space for gardening and agricultural arts. More information on the site and facilities is available here.
