Phase II. We are open to the Heavens.

ONE VISUALIZATION OF THE DREAM


View from the far end...the building in the front is the administrative wing (on the left) and the elementary through high school on the right...that building has two floors. No elevator...circular ramp instead. Official size soccer playing field behind the educational wing.

 


Jessica and Alicia with the model. The green roofed building is
a covered sports court that doubles as a large auditorium and meeting place. Jessica is sitting right where our church property is located. This particular building could very possibly double for church and school use. One of the two entrances to the property (which will be surrounded by wall) is right in front of Jessica. The other is on the opposite side. The six-sided "thing" opposite her is a hexagonal drive placed between the educational buildings.


A complete view. The square "building" with the court in the middle (on the lower right) is the pre-school. Nursery, Pre-school and kindergarten are housed in this area. Next to it on the left is a light blue rectangle which is a sports court. The oval behind that is a kids' pool to be used by this wing and behind that is a semi-olympic swimming pool with covered bleachers for the elementary and highschool. The two light green rectangular areas are soccer courts (hard floor). The long buildings on the two sides are shower rooms for the entire sports area.




View of entire layout. The plan that was drawn up has a capacity for 1200 students. Only God knows if we will become quite that large. I for one, don't think we will be ready for quite that big of a school for a long time. :-)

 

 

Personal note: The architecteral student who used ALFA as his final project received a perfect grade. Even so, we may only use some of his ideas in our final layout. As you can see, sports takes quite the priority in this plan. Just as an example, there is a 132 seat air-conditioned auditorium. With a building plan that has a 1200 student capacity, you couldn't even fit the faculty in that size auditorium. Not to mention drama and music presentations. We are using the "arts" as one of our big calling cards... Band and music are basically non-existent in schools here in Brazil; we especially want to have a solid music department, not to mention the foreign language(English), computers, etc.
