About this artwork

By redefining architectural building typologies, John Ronan’s design for Perth Amboy High School literally blurs the boundaries between the institution and the community it serves. Formally, the architect superimposed three conceptual systems—the Mat (the site), the Barscape (the academic facilities), and the Tower. All three are communally programmed spaces shared with the neighborhood, and they collectively make up the landscape of this vast high school. The overall building is an elegant solution that encodes new formal relationships and rethinks the role of institutions in the greater community
