Architects unveil plans for school to replace site of Newtown massacre

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:06

Alana Konefal, a senior designer with Svigals + Partners architecture firm presents an updated design concept for the new Sandy Hook Elementary School in NewtownBy Richard Weizel NEWTOWN, Connecticut (Reuters) - Architects on Tuesday unveiled designs for a new elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, filled with sunlight, connections to nature - and new security measures - to replace the building where a gunman killed 26 people, mostly young children, in 2012, one of the worst such attacks in U.S. history. The proposal calls for the $50 million Sandy Hook Elementary School building in the suburb to be set on a hill, further from roads and parking lots than its predecessor, to improve security without creating a fortress-like environment, architects told a school commission on Tuesday evening. "Children are not unlike plants, they need light and they need nature," Barry Svigals, an architect from Svigals & Partners, of New Haven said. "To enhance safety and create a cozy, secure environment the new school will be further back in the woods with buffer areas between cars and classrooms with lots of light and trees right outside," Robert Mitchell, chairman of the town's Public Building and Site Commission, said in a phone interview.
