Officials with the Los Angeles school district say the $232 million High School for the Visual and Performing Arts is 70% complete. Starting in fall 2009, the campus will serve about 1,600 students. More than 60 classrooms and loft-style workspaces with 14-foot ceilings will be split between two main school buildings. Stairways look out to the street through huge circular windows. A third building will house administrative offices, and the courtyard will hold a public plaza that segues into a partially outdoor cafeteria with views of the Downtown skyline. The architects that have worked on the project include Coop Himmelblau, HMC Architects and AC Martin Partners.
