WILLIAM C. GOUDY TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY

A major addition designed to relate seamlessly with an historic 1920’s Chicago Public School. The 44,600 SF addition provided new classrooms, administration offices and multipurpose room.

Project Details

The William C. Goudy Technology Academy is located in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, and had been filled beyond capacity for many years. As part of the Chicago Public Schools capital improvement program, Goudy received funding for a major building addition. This was carefully designed using masonry detailing sympathetic to the original building. Maintaining the craftsmanship of the limestone and brickwork detailing was essential in reorientation of the new entry. The primary parent and child access to the school was designed to be fully accessible and securely monitored. The addition further resolved upper floor accessibility issues to permit access to all educational spaces.
