American School Foundation of Guadalajara | High School

The American School Foundation of Guadalajara’s new High School is a bold and forward-looking approach to education and the environment. The LEED-Certified, 7-story open-air structure doubles academic space while maximizing green space and providing state-of-the-art facilities that support 21st-century education. Bright colors, sculptural forms, natural materials, and crisp design are inspired by Guadalajara’s cultural heritage. Drawing from Mexico’s cortile buildings, courtyards, and public sculptures, the design embraces the city’s architectural history and fosters a strong sense of community. The project connects classrooms to the outdoors, incorporating lush green space and utilizing Guadalajara’s climate in its sustainable design.
