Sidwell Friends School - Middle School Addition

master plan + site design | washington, dc

Andropogon’s Master Plan & Site Design at Sidwell Friends School included a central courtyard with a constructed wetland designed to utilize storm and wastewater for both ecological and educational purposes. Andropogon’s plan integrated water management solutions into the landscape, inextricably linking the building to its site.  The wetland becomes a “working landscape”; using biological processes to clean water while providing students with a vivid example of how such systems work in nature.
