Design Approach/Narrative: As the design team met with the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy & the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation for the 3 rd and final phase to complete build out of the AACPA, the discussion not only turned toward curriculum and requirements but what this final step of completing their campus signifies to the student. The final phase was not really an ending but a beginning of what will follow. As our teams talked, it became apparent that the design of the 3 rd phase would signify a culmination of the matriculation process and a celebration of the next phase of their journey: college and the rest of their lives. This became the major design idea for the process.
