NYC School Construction Authority: Mott Haven Campus

Bronx, New York, USA

A large complex of four schools provides a contemporary campus learning environment for more than two thousand New York high school students.

The largest single school construction project in New York City history, the Mott Haven Campus of the NYC School Construction Authority brings a much needed educational facility to the South Bronx. Designed in association with Alexander Gorlin Architects, the complex includes three high schools—Bronx Leadership Academy, New Explorers High School, and Urban Assembly for Careers in Sports—plus a K-4 KIPP Academy. All of them are centered around a performing arts center and playing field. Each school features small learning communities where students and teachers thrive in focused settings; each stands out with distinct front doors, color schemes, classrooms, and administrative spaces; and each functions independently while remaining connected to the others with communal areas that bring students together for recreating, performing, and socializing.
