Agriculture & Culinary School of Farmington
a fourth year core studio at the University of Nevada Las Vegas [UNLV]
A vocational school is to be designed to accomodate for the agricultural and culinary arts. Farmington is a city with high crime and high school dropout rates, a program like this can give the city new life but also give young adults who do not relate to the standard educational system a new path to follow and excel in.
The program consists of two tracks, agriculture and culinary. Giving each subject its own building (or bar) simplifies the layout of the site and creates a shared courtyard space for students.
The school intends to be public, private & communal. With a cafe and market placed near the public entrance, the Agriculture & Culinary School of Farmington uses the opportunity to mark its place within the community.
