Science Center

Indian Springs School

Indian Springs, Alabama

Indian Springs School is a 350-acre, private boarding school that enrolls students in grades eight through twelve. In 2004 ArchitectureWorks worked with the School to develop a new Master Plan and subsequently design two new Dormitories and the Science Center.

The Science Center houses the biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science departments. Organized along a central corridor, flexible, multi-use classrooms are paired with teacher offices. This central spine, glazed along one edge, floods the display space with natural light. Rainwater is collected from the roof into cisterns for use in the greenhouse.
