The interiors are comprised of walls that slide to reveal breakout learning space, storage, glazing or teaching surfaces. Each
side of the classroom serves a different purpose, whether it is
a wet wall with bathroom facilities, a glass wall that opens to
provide access to an exterior classroom space or a deep wall
that provides storage.

Building Museum to Display
Sustainable K–12 Classroom
WASHINGTON—Sprout Space, a modular and sustainable
classroom, will be displayed on the lawn of the National Building Museum throughout 2013 as part of the Green Schools
exhibit. Designed by Perkins+Will, the classroom won Architecture for Humanity’s Open Architecture Challenge: Design
the Classroom of the Future.
The prefab classroom’s sustainable features include sun
shades, integrated rainwater collection, LED lighting with
lighting controls, operable windows and daylighting. Space
conditioning is provided by variable refrigerant flow (VRF)
heat pumps and energy-recovery ventilation.
All materials are selected for low emissivity and include
FSC-certified wood, high-reflective roofs and bio-based insulation and flooring. The adaptive design enables various teaching
styles and seating arrangements.
The classroom is delivered on two semi-trucks and can be
constructed in 60 days. Less than 100 lbs (45 kg) of construction waste are created. Sprout Space is placed on permanent
footings, but can be disassembled and moved. It provides 1,008
ft2 (94 m2) of space at $120/ft2 ($1,292/m2).
“More than 7.5 million children are being taught in mobile
classrooms in the U.S.,” said Allen Post, AIA, of Perkins+Will.
“While most of the estimated 300,000 mobile classrooms are
designed for temporary use, the actual average use exceeds
five years,” he said.

NEW YORK—Halfway through the time allowed for compliance with the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(ARRA) requirement to adopt building energy codes, 18 states
still do not meet the residential requirements, and 15 do not meet
the commercial requirements. Eight states have no statewide
building energy codes.
