Forest Park High School
Smolen Emr Ilkovitch Architects
This is a renovation of and addition to an existing four-story urban high school into a state-of-the-art next generation learning environment serving inner-city Baltimore. With intense collaboration and holistic design solutions, the design team transformed the outdated building into an open, welcoming, naturally lit, and sustainable academic and community environment with a LEED Silver rating. The high school now features a variety of learning environments extending beyond the classroom to accommodate all learning styles, student collaboration, and a variety of learning group sizes. The school now combines an energetic, forward-thinking architectural aesthetic with an aggressive design solution. The building now reflects its role as a prized and cherished community institution.
