Modernist design principles were adapted to the demands of the sub-tropical environment. Elements of this style echo South Florida architecture of the early 1950s and include window eyebrows, operable louvers, and north elevation fenestration to control sun and ventilation.  The Media Center is defined by the vaulted metal roof with north-facing clerestory windows. The Kindergarten Reading Area is defined by the round clerestory roof. Steel columns with poured-in-place concrete slabs provide exterior circulation space.
