Process

The new Association of Retarded Citizens’ building ensures user-dignity with abundant natural light throughout the commodious workshop, classroom, cafeteria, and activity spaces. A fully glazed façade and ample porte-cochere provide a user-friendly entrance to a sky-lit lobby emblazoned with “ARC.” Radiant heat floors for non-ambulatory children, wide doors open to porches under the eaves, and a multi-sensory landscape cater to all abilities.
