|Lynnwood High School|
Lynnwood High School is a high school in the Edmonds School District, located in Bothell, Washington, USA. The school has approximately 1600 students enrolled for grades 9-12 as of the 2013-2014 school year.
The school buildings are located on North Road, east of Lynnwood. The funding for construction was approved in 2006 and construction began in June 2007, after a wooded area was logged.
Designed by Bassetti Architects, the building was opened on September 8, 2009 It is configured around a central common space called The Agora, named after the Greek word for “place of assembly” and “marketplace”. Four wings radiate from the Agora: two are two-story classroom wings, the others are a performing arts wing and an athletics wing. The gymnasium and performing arts wings are designed to function separately from the rest of the building outside of normal school hours.
The new school has many environmentally friendly features such as skylights to bring in natural sunlight into the building instead of using lighting. Despite protests from some environmental groups, the school was built on a wooded area. West of the new football field are the remaining evergreen trees in a protected wetland. A natural area to the north of the school is protected wetland with a pond and trees. A storm water detention pond north of the football field diverts potentially polluted water from going into local creeks and waterways. Classrooms are not air conditioned but have natural convection ventilation. The buildings have received an Energy Star design certification. Its expected energy use is a reduction of 44 percent compared with an average building of similar type.
The new building received the international annual design award of the Council of Educational Facilities Planners International for 2010, the James D. MacConnell Award for outstanding new educational facilities. In 2011 the new school was recognized as one of ten “Schools of the 21st Century – The Latest Thinking and Best Ideas on the Planning and Design of K-12 School Buildings”, by Architectural Record magazine.
Old 184th St location
The site is planned to be redeveloped into a multi-use center called Lynnwood Place with retail and restaurant components. In December 2010 it was announced that Costco Wholesale would occupy 160,000 square feet (15,000 m2) of the property. If all permits are approved for the new development, it can be expected to open in 2013.
