Riverview Junior/Senior High School

Commissioned shortly after the Jewett Arts Center, this represents a return to forms and techniques more familiar and easily manageable. All volumes of spaces have been organized into two intersecting masses which are in turn penetrated vertically and horizontally. Regular structural systems are painted dark-brown, with light brick or glass infilling walls and clear simple geometry. Natural light is shaded and enters the building in many different ways. But alas, it has no sense of the particular uniqueness of the Florida climate.
