Describes the process of design and redesign of El Segundo High School in California, which was originally designed in Lombard Romanesque style in the 1930s and had additional buildings added in the 1940s and 1950s. The high school modernization began with a master plan that included demolition of substandard structures; utilization of the remaining building stock to its best use; modernization of all teaching spaces to provide essential pedagogical infrastructure; development of the site to rationalize parking and drop off and create a sense of place; and construction of a new state-of-the-art music and science building. Covers design, redesign, and features and includes photographs.
