From the Field: Eco-Friendly Architecture at Manassas Park Elementary School



January 29, 2010

From naturally lit classrooms, to a system that alerts students when it’s the right temperature to open their classroom windows, Manassas Park Elementary is an amazing achievement in eco-friendly architecture and design. Teaming sustainable design with eco-friendly approaches, the architects at VMDO are attempting to create the best working atmosphere for the children and teacher who work here.
