Doull Elementary School

Doull Elementary School is considered the gem of the Harvey Park neighborhood located in southwest Denver. This community reflects the distinct social diversity found in America. The Learning Landscape concept is that of diversity and community. The concept is driven by Chaco Canyon and the Pueblo Bonito in northern New Mexico. The playground uses a central axis to create spaces for various uses. A large elevated and centralized shade structure is used as a gathering space, as well as a performance stage. A Denver Urban Garden community garden is planned to bring the community learn and grow together. A sun plaza located in the center of the garden is the beginning of an interpretive solar walk that educates its travelers as they move through the playground.
