The UNO Elementary School Soccer Academy provides a great lesson for both children and adults. With its 99% student attendance rate and 2013 Architizer A+ Popular Choice Award, it shows that architecture can have a huge impact on young minds. Juan Gabriel Moreno, president of the design firm responsible for the academy, states, “We took a risk. It didn’t matter to me if people didn’t like the design. What matters is that the students want to be there. That is something we should all remember.”

Located in Chicago and designed by JGMA, the UNO Elementary School Soccer Academy boasts a sharp, futuristic aesthetic that boasts a largely glass exterior that allows extensive views of the outdoors. The design also relies on natural light and peer connectivity as its core inspiration.
