Project profile: Argonne Child Development Center

Apr 30, 2003

Argonne Child Development Center is San Francisco's first solar-powered school. Since Argonne shares its site with San Francisco's largest community garden, neighbor and community participation were essential to the design of the project. The new school building incorporates the surrounding gardens and play areas to stretch the concept of a classroom.
