    ​I will taking school clients to new York, while attending the aia conference next week.  we are wanting to visit a couple of middle or high schools that are taking a risk educationally and architecturally.  the district is heavy in career academies and not interested in the status quo.  any advice on schools to visit either in the city or surrounding areas.

    any advice is appreciated.

    Which schools are you seeing that are taking risks academically and architecturally?  

    Have you considered the Gateway Schools on West 60th Street?

    Hi,

    Here is a link from NYC Department of Education about Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design:


    Address:
    257 NORTH 6 STREET
    BROOKLYN, NY 11211

    You should be able to navigate through this page for other High Schools.
    I would recommend to get in touch with any of the school personnel to inform them about your visit.

    Cheers,
    Friederike
