Design Approach: The Andre Agassi Foundation’s goal was to establish a program in a collegiate setting for a K-12 charter school on one campus. The facilities need to be constructed to accommodate new grade levels as they emerge. The initial concept of a tree, which physically and metaphorically gives life and hope to the project and users, was used throughout the design process. This tree and the journey the students take to get to the tree were constantly used to guide design decisions. The project, at its most general description is about the journey students take through their life while at the school, paralleled closely by the journey the architects ventured with the client.
