Midvale Elementary School
Client: Canyons School District
Location: Midvale, UT
Size: 87,500 SF
The design concept is based on depicting unique land formation in Utah to elementary school students. The Building serves as “The Third Teacher” depicting land movement at seismic fault lines, effects due to wind, rain, and erosion. All of Utah’s five national parks are depicted subtly in the building design explaining the formations of mountains, caves and canyons. The historic school bell (manufactured in the year 1905) from the original building was restored and installed in the center of the new courtyard on a concrete pedestal. The history of Midvale City is also depicted in prominent areas in the new school.
