  • flexible, project based learning space.
  • “fat L” assigned learning spaces for a variety of in room groupings
  • community service spaces for the under-served
  • community specific features that reflect community history heritage or values

Fairview Elementary School

225 Main Street, Fairview, OR 97024
Time: 4:00 pm

Fairview Elementary School provides district planners insights and inspiration for the development of cost-effective yet warm, flexible and functional high performance school facilities. Developed via a modified prototypical design process that encompassed a broad cross-section of district, school and community stakeholders, Fairview illustrates the benefit of standardizing learning spaces – providing program and amenity parity across diverse communities – while providing the opportunity to tailor facility design to the unique character and needs of individual schools and neighborhoods.

Fairview Fairview

The learning pod design, organized by grade level, provides the means of breaking down scale for this 72,000 SF, 600-student school, offering a personalized learning experience for elementary students while maintaining connection to the larger school community.

As the first elementary school in Oregon to register for Energy Trust of Oregon's Path to Net Zero program (along with its companion schools, Wilkes and Troutdale) Fairview Elementary demonstrates that meaningful energy efficiency and resource conservation strategies can be cost-effectively integrated into the planning and design processes without significantly elevating project construction costs.

As a long-standing and central fixture in community life, Fairview's design honors history and legacy through an authentic use of exterior materials and an interior design that accommodates shared community use. The integration of an original 14' X 44' mural depicting uniquely local community elements, history and the surrounding geography inspires pride of place in students, teachers, staff and visitors.

2019 Pacific Northwest Regional Conference

The Sky Is the Limit May 29-31, 2019
The Sky Is the Limit: Growing Healthy Learning Environments
Sheraton Cavalier Saskatoon Hotel
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Book your room!

Call for Presentations

Individual growth doesn't happen at a singular level. Taking a holistic approach to learning, we will examine and consider the elements that both encourage and engage or limit a student's potential.

Thoughtfully designed environments pay heed to not only the intellectual needs of a student, but also their social, cultural, and physical well-being, allowing the kind of foundational growth that will carry them successfully into a lifelong pursuit of learning – where the "Sky is the Limit". The Pacific Northwest Region is excited to announce that our call for presentations is now open for our Regional Conference, set for May 29-31, 2019 at the Sheraton Hotel in Saskatoon, SK.

We encourage association members, as well, as interested firms and districts/divisions to submit your proposals for a presentation.

Submit your proposal!

Submissions Due: February 28, 2019


Congratulations to the 2018 Scholarship Winner!

Mentors Needed

Would you like to share your knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction with middle school students and helps shape their understanding of what our built environment in the future could be like? The Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter is looking for volunteers to be mentors for middle school students in the Metro area as they participate in the SchoolsNEXT Design Competition, which challenges student teams to design their “school of the future”. Mentors will work directly with students and their teachers, and can volunteer for as much time as they are able. Planning, design, construction and operations knowledge in all fields and skills are welcome. The competition starts in Fall and concludes with the Chapter competition in March. This is a great opportunity to educate our sustainability leaders of the future! Contact Robert Allen or Katrina Shum Miller for more information.
