Garfield High School
Scope: Master Planning
Size: 19.5 Acres
Project Manager: Richard Berliner, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP
Berliner worked with LAUSD to survey and verify conditions, deficiencies, and needs to develop a campus Master Plan for Garfield High School. Berliner began the process by interviewing administration and staff to hear concerns and requirements. A site analysis was completed documenting building and land uses, facility conditions, circulation patterns, open spaces uses, underutilized areas and needed infrastructural improvements. One priority for the Garfield campus was replacing an outdated and undersized sports facility with new, expanded facilities including a gymnasium and baseball field. The Master Plan also proposed a new pedestrian mall to connect the separated sections of the campus and provide additional outdoor seating spaces throughout the campus.
