Bard High School Early College DC Marks New Frontier in Sustainable Urban Design

Washington, DC — Award-winning architecture and design firm Perkins Eastman DC (PEDC) has designed Bard High School Early College DC, an early college program located in Ward 8 in Washington, DC. Through adaptive reuse measures, and by addressing carbon holistically while enhancing thermal comfort and indoor environmental quality, PEDC transformed a brutalist 1960s-era building into the new Bard High School, a diverse and light-filled learning landscape focused on civic presence, community connection, student experience, and academic excellence.
