The conversion of the science wing to a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Architecture, and Math) Hub sits at the intersection of several of the key guiding principles of the Lincoln School Master Plan developed by LLB in 2016. It presented an opportunity to recast traditional classrooms as dynamic spaces for group collaboration and project-based learning, improve flow and functionality, and reintroduce Lincoln School as a powerhouse educator of girls.
The design of the two-story, 4,000 sf addition is very modern; a visual expression of the school’s mantra ‘where tradition meets innovation.' It features a dramatic glass curtainwall with 20 vertical fins, or sun shades, spaced in such a way as to create rolling shade as the sun moves. The modern, curvilinear design allows people outside to literally look through the new addition and see the adjacent historic gymnasium.
