New York studio Architecture + Information aimed to create an environment that is "playful, not childish" for this school in Manhattan. AltSchool is an educational startup that was founded in 2014 with locations in New York and San Francisco. Its teaching methodology is intended to respond to individual student's needs and integrate technology into their course structure. Architecture + Information (A+I) therefore designed the interiors to accommodate these requirements.
"Just as each student at AltSchool has the unique opportunity to be taught based on their own learning style, each space was designed to be flexible enough to accommodate many students' individual needs as well as myriad unique learning styles and uses," said the architecture firm. The school's newest outpost occupies the entire floor plate of an existing building near Manhattan's Union Square. Located at 90 5th Avenue, it is housed in an 11-storey stone building built in 1903. At the centre of the school is the Agora – a stepped seating area that allows all the students to gather for presentations or events. The blue structure also integrates small nooks in which children can spend time alone. Off this space is the Design Lab, an open-ended area with movable tables and chairs. "The Design Lab is the most flexible space, primarily used as maker-space of all kinds, (arts and crafts, large-scale science experiments)," said A+I.
