The Colorado Building Workshop has put together a learning center for students to learn more about agriculture in relation to city living. The result is a steel, outdoor structure that looks anything but like a traditional classroom.
According to DesignBoom, "the orientation of the volume allows for views into the space by staff sitting in their office, while simultaneously offering privacy for those inside of the classroom." There was some concern about vandalism, which is why the specific steel material was used and arranged in a specific manner. People can still enjoy learning outdoors, but the area can also be secured too. Moreover the steel already has a worn look to it, so there isn't much concern about dents and scratches, or even broken windows.
