MARICOPA — During a presentation to the Maricopa Unified School board on Wednesday, representatives from building and design companies revealed a groundbreaking date and shared new 3D maps of the brand new high school off Farrell and Murphy roads.
Orcutt and Winslow Architect Saravanan Bala gave the board a first look at how the front of the school could look. The renderings show a grey, angular building with dark blue accents and desert landscaping.
“One of the things that I’d mentioned before, was that I didn’t want the outside of the building to be kind of plain looking,” said board President Ben Owens. “You nailed it, the dimension and the textures that I’m seeing here — I realize this is a rendering — but it’s not just a plain block wall that feels like a prison. I’m impressed.”
