We focused on one of the plaza areas commonly known as “the Science Plaza”. It has an area of scattered tables where students gather at lunch as well as a walled-in stage area with metal benches. The focus of the project will be the stage area. We will tie in the surrounding plaza area to the theme The Pride is Back.
The “stage” and benches are two years old and seldom used. The students feel this is mostly due to the cold unwelcoming feeling of the space. It is surrounded by concrete walls. Color, hardscape, and places to showcase student work are needed. Murals on walls will focus on Mountain View history and success.
