Design Approach/Narrative: Roy Martin is a middle school located near the famous Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Originally built in 1964, and has become an activity hub for the neighborhood. In 2004 the school fell victim to arson as the gymnasium was destroyed along with portions of the school being heavily damaged.

This project is a replacement for the now partially destroyed school. The new school will attempt to replace the building that housed the activity core and excitement of the neighborhood with simple yet dramatic gestures that reflect the diversity and creativity of this community. A central courtyard will act as the school hub focusing all school energy to this area while the use of daylight in classrooms will dramatically affect the form making of the buildings. The dynamic forms, the larger than life signage and welcoming atmosphere all reflect the pride of place that both students and teachers have for their "community hub"-the impetus of this design.
