About the project
The American School Foundation of Guadalajara (ASFG) is a co-educational day school offering an international education program for 1500 students from Pre-K through 12th grade. The campus covers 2.6 hectares (6.5 acres) on an urban site in a rapidly growing city, with developments and high-rise buildings growing around it.
The design is a six-story building at the edge of the campus that includes classrooms for grades 9-12, a library for middle and high school students, common spaces on every floor for small group gatherings, a kitchen and cafeteria, and administration. Each floor has open-air corridors, and the roof is accessible garden space. The building is seeking LEED certification.
