Cary Grove High School Crystal Lake, Illinois.

Web Abstract: 
Describes the title school building by Perkins and Will, including the educational context and design goals. Includes information on the architects, manufacturers/suppliers, and construction team; a general building description; and a commentary on the design. Also includes the floor plan and photographs. Renovations to the existing 1952 structure and media center addition reinvigorates the school with an architecturally significant structure, provides space for 1,200 students, and creates flexible areas for diverse learning environments. The materials of the new media center include a variegated range brick, anodized aluminum fascias, and clear glass. These extend the vocabulary of the original building, while introducing a fresh image. [Free subscriber registration is required.]
