Fischer Dining Pavilion – Fort Worth Country Day — Fort Worth, Texas

Info

Completed in 2008, the Fischer Dining Pavilion is intended to be the school’s crown jewel and establishes the design vocabulary for future buildings on the Fort Worth Country Day campus. The building functions primarily as the main dining hall on campus, but it is also a multi-purpose facility that accommodates banquets, assemblies, dances and other functions. The roof slopes up to the north to create a clerestory that captures the indirect north light while also providing an overhang on the south side of the building to shade the windows on the southern exposure. The covered walkways are intended to become a common element on future campus buildings, providing shade and shelter to the students as well as casual gathering spaces between classes.
