Learning Corridor Master Plan & Arts, Math & Science Academies
Client: SINA/City of Hartford
Completion Date: 2000
Adjacent to the Trinity College campus, the Learning Corridor was conceived as the central component of a neighborhood revitalization program, which reaches well beyond its physical boundaries. TSKP STUDIO was commissioned to create a master plan for the new K-12 educational campus on a 16-acre urban block. At the conclusion of the master plan, the firm designed secondary magnet academies that provide advanced instruction to 250 students drawn from 40 surrounding towns. The Math and Science Academy provides labs and breakout areas for math, computer, robotics, physics, chemistry and bio-chemistry. The Arts Academy consists of a 650-seat proscenium theater, a 125-seat recital hall, black box theater, full complement of rehearsal spaces, and studios for both visual and performing arts. Central to the design are spaces for collaboration between students and faculty. The 110,000 sq. ft. facility forms the gateway to the campus.
