        A short film illustrating how a green school can be so much more - an educational eco-system. Designed by VMDO Architects in Charlottesville, Virginia. The design for the Manassas Park Elementary School and Pre-K project is based on two fundamental ideas: Just as every moment can be a ‘teachable moment’, there is no such thing as a non-teachable place; We can’t expect people to protect and conserve something that they don’t understand. More than a teaching tool, the building is an educational ecosystem. Wayfinding & finishes echo the adjacent forest. Classroom signs double as informational displays on commonly found local flora and fauna. When in natural ventilation mode, green lights tell students to open the windows, making them active participants in conservation. To learn more, visit vmdo.com
