The American School Foundation of Guadalajara (ASFG) is a co-educational day school offering an international education program for 1500 students from Pre-K through 12th grade. The campus covers 2.6 hectares (6.5 acres) on an urban site in a rapidly growing city, with developments and high rise buildings growing around it.
The design is a six-story building at the edge of the campus that includes classrooms for grades 9-12, a library for middle and high school school students, common spaces on every floor for small group gathering, a kitchen and cafeteria, and administration. Each floor has open air corridors, and the roof is accessible garden space. The building is seeking LEED Gold certification. Construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2019. Once complete, a wing of older existing classrooms will be removed, enlarging the central play area.
