Avenues: The World School

Avenues: The World School

New York, NY, USA

A global school where space is imagined as a canvas for individual and group learning brings 1,600 Pre-K through 12th grade students together in a landmark site on Manhattan’s west side.

Matching a curriculum based on high academic standards, self-directed learning, collaboration, and global citizenship, Perkins Eastman’s design for Avenues: The World School’s inaugural New York City location draws on the city surrounding it. A historic warehouse transformed into a 10-story educational campus overlooking the High Line, the school connects to the world beyond its walls. The building fosters relationships among students from pre-K through 12th grade. All spaces are educational and advance learning in multiple ways, with corridors containing breakout areas and digital displays throughout.
