ENR Texas Louisiana announced the 2016 Best Project Winners and Lee High will be receiving it's award at the October 19th event.
August 9, 2016
A total of 92 entries in this year’s competition yielded 35 winners in 18 categories. We would like to give a special thanks to the contractor, Milton J. Womack of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The design team of GraceHebert Architects and associate architects DLR Group were tasked with creating a technology rich, flexible and adaptable school that supports project based learning. Therefore the design for Lee High School does not follow a traditional school layout. The school consists of flexible spaces that can be configured for a variety of uses. Visual connections in learning labs and specialized spaces give students a reason to become excited about learning.
The school is designed around three specialized academies and a Commons Building. The specialized academies include Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Bio-medical and Digital Arts. Students and staff at Lee High School will be able to collaborate throughout the facility, providing opportunities for interdisciplinary and cross-curriculum instruction. The facility is designed to promote real-life experiences, allowing students to apply what they learn in a classroom in a specialized laboratory within their academy.
