The learning resource center includes a variety of spaces for collaborative learning or independent study with a mixture of café-style and soft seating. The space includes a memo-rial wall dedicated to Judith Resnick with mementos related to the space shuttle, as well as an eight-foot by 20-foot metal screen sculpture by noted Akron artist Don Drumm, all retained from the former school. The middle school, connected by a secured corridor, is similarly pro-grammed. The upper two floors are comprised of double-loaded corridors with classrooms, labs and offices on both sides, and arranged around a second interior courtyard. “Overall, we wanted to vastly improve site circulation and safety,” Peterson says. “The previous schools were a bit disjointed. [The new complex is] very well laid out and organized, and flows a lot better.” The CLC’s newly constructed athletic facilities include a 2,200-seat high school gym, a 500-seat middle school gym, a wrestling room and locker rooms.
