Arch Month: Virtual Tour of HB Woodlawn – the Heights School in Arlington
April 1

Offered throughout April as part of Virginia Architecture Month.  

Join the AIA Northern Virginia Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) and AIA Virginia for a virtual tour and panel discussion about the new Heights Building, an Arlington Public School (APS) facility in Northern Virginia.

The structural masterpiece is inspired by the values and educational mission of APS and serves as a model example for innovative solutions to school design. Green terraces at each floor become an extension of the classrooms, creating an indoor-outdoor learning landscape for both students and teachers – an educational oasis rather than a traditional school setting, addressing the academic needs of the school’s program while forming a vertical community within its dense urban context.
The panel discussion features speakers from Bjarke Ingels Group, Leo A Daly, Arlington Public Schools, Silman, and Gilbane.
