Alta Vista Elementary School - Lorrie Muldowney
Description
"Constructed of laminated wood trusses, the 'butterfly-wing' roof of the Alta Vista Elementary School addition shelters outdoor learning areas that were originally connected to classrooms by sliding window walls. Experimentation with new building technologies was a hallmark of the Sarasota School of Architecture." - Morris Hylton
