Mother Teresa Catholic School

Grande Prairie, AB


Project Description

Size: 3,600 m2

Cost: $26 million

Location: Grande Prairie, Alberta

The school is a "gathering" of students, teachers, community, and light. Designed to celebrate "play" as learning, the building is a collection of four distinct parts: public gathering, education suite, administration, and amenity framework.

Each part is formally distinct but when they are integrated together, they function to create space and form. The interface of these parts creates playful spaces that are variable, flexible, and adaptable for the progression of student life.
