The Northwest ISD Outdoor Learning Center

Northwest ISD’s Outdoor Learning Center has been named a finalist in the 2017-18 Exhibit of School Architecture competition, which honors excellence in the planning and designing of learning environments.

The OLC will now compete for Caudill Class recognition with four other educational architecture projects in Texas. As part of its recognition as a finalist, the OLC has been designated a Star of Distinction in the competition, making it one of the top educational architecture projects in the state. Winners of the competition will be announced at the TASA Midwinter Conference in January.

To be named a Caudill finalist, the OLC earned stars in at least four of six areas of distinction.

The OLC’s design will be on display at the Texas Association of School Administrators and Texas Association of School Boards Convention in Dallas from Oct. 6-8. If the OLC wins, it will mark the second consecutive year a Northwest ISD facility earned the honor; Eaton High School received Caudill Class recognition in 2016. The OLC was designed by Stantec, while Eaton was designed by Corgan.
