LAUSD Dorsey High School


Architect: gkkworks


AHBE Landscape Architects is collaborating with LAUSD and gkkworks on this expansion project. The landscape portion consists of three key components: the main plaza, the outdoor classroom, and the small courtyard.


The main plaza is inspired by a "forest." Trees will be grouped and a series of seating walls will fall directly below the canopy, creating shady areas for gathering and socializing. Adjacent to the plaza is the outdoor classroom. Paving and seating compliments a central, defined area with space for open-air lectures and tutorials. Curvilinear items will enhance visual connectivity between the plaza and the outdoor.
