THE SALLY RIDE CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE AT LAUSD
Designed by HMC Architects, the center's two buildings are laid-out in a V-shape, opening to an outdoor classroom that then faces out over a "Bio-Swale", educational walkway and a planned greenhouse with the Los Angeles River and Griffith Park in the distance. The LEED certified facility is a 6,000 square-foot resource center for real-world science projects that include four full-size working labs, a meeting room, materials and equipment storage space, a planned greenhouse and raised-bed planting areas for native plant propagation. Water and soil testing, native plant species propagation, and energy conservation research are some of the specific program areas students and their teachers pursue here. The goal is to provide them with the very equipment and workspace that
parallels a modern environmental testing laboratory.
