Revitalization of Lincoln's Modern School
On March 16, 2023, The Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln awarded the Lincoln Public School with the Annual Award. A presentation, panel discussion, and reception celebrating the revitalization of Lincoln’s Modern school at the Learning Commons at the School. Lincoln Modern architects Lawrence B. Anderson and Henry B. Hoover, who designed the original school buildings beginning in the 1940s, saw the power of Modernism to reimagine how architecture could assist the school community to think and learn in new and inclusive ways. With the generous support of the Town, the School Building Committee, and the project architects have again reimagined the transformative power of architecture. The project team has realized an ambitious net zero project that centers on teachers and students while preserving Anderson’s and Hoover’s original design intent of creating close connections to nature and using natural light to create calm energy throughout the building.
