Work is now well underway at Western Gateway Elementary, AHMM’s first school in the US. The timber framed single storey building in the new Wheeler District of Oklahoma City wraps around an internal courtyard that will create a space for collaborative learning and play, and provide protection from the strong Oklahoma wind and summer sun. Western Gateway Elementary joins AHMM’s mixed use Wheeler Block 13, which recently topped out, in a new neighbourhood replacing the disused Oklahoma City airfield.
