Harker School Performing Arts Center
San Jose, CA
The Harker School Performing Arts Center and Athletic Center together create a vibrant new gateway to the High School campus. The buildings, through the use of welcoming public spaces, natural light, acoustic shaping, and natural materials, create warm, flexible, and intimately scaled communal spaces.
The Performing Arts Center, with its 60-foot fly system, acoustical excellence, and flexibility, provides spaces for students to learn, practice and perform in vocal, instrumental music, dance, theater, and technical production. The Athletic Center’s sawtooth clerestory roof orients a large photovoltaic power system, instrumental in achieving LEED Gold for both buildings.
