A New York, l'agence d'architecture Peter Gluck and Partners signe la réalisation de la East Harlem School. Une école à la façade épurée et pixellisée qui se dresse au 309 East 103 Road Street.

Sur ce projet, les architectes de Peter Gluck and Partners précisent:

"The new 27,800 square foot ground-up building champions the school's mission and culture of learning and social awareness through spaces suffused with natural light, promoting calm, creativity, and collective responsibility. The entry lobby, cafeteria, and multi-purpose gymnasium on the lower floors, used for daily school-wide gatherings and public special events, are all linked by light-filled stairs and gentle ramps. On the fade, translucent, acid-etched glass provides a hint of the daily activity of students and teachers to the neighborhood as they come and go. Classrooms reside on the more private upper floors, screened by a fabric-like weave of staggered windows and panels of varying colors and degrees of reflectivity. On the interior, this composition in turn creates an organized system of tack boards for instructional materials and other displays. The school had an extremely tight budget, caused both by the high cost of construction that plagues inner-city schools and the fact that its site was within the 100-year flood zone."
