Morphosis, Diamond Ranch High School, California The land was shaped in conjunction with the architecture to minimize the displacement of earth; the sitting of the project took advantage of a natural bowl for the playing field and primary football field, embedding them in the slope at the south of the site. The gymnasium to the east mimics the hillside with a pitched roof that undulates with the terrain.
The desire to take advantage of the site's natural beauty, was joined by other two main themes on which the planners have focused: the social organization and the educational flexibility.
The first goal was to create a dynamic built environment that enables social interaction between students, teachers, administration and the community.
